Abstract

Building upon social exchange theory, this study was designed to examine the impact of job security, job satisfaction, and employee engagement on the commitment level of employees working at Mohmand Jahed group of companies (MJC), a Kabul based logistics supply and services providing company. A self-administered survey instrument was used to collect data from the participants. Employees working at MJC (N=180) were the participants of the study. The study found that job security, job satisfaction, and employee engagement are the positive and significant predictors of employee commitment that explain 62% variation in the criterion variable (employee commitment). Although, results of the present study are in line with the previous research findings, nevertheless, the findings of the study cannot be generalized, since the data were collected from the participants of one of the Kabul based companies (i.e., MJC). A large sample size from different logistics supply and services providing companies can help in the more profound understanding of the phenomenon as well as drawing the real picture of an issue in Afghanistan.
