Abstract: There is an increasing need for workplace flexibility in order to respond to the changing labour force in today‟s workplace. To remain competitive, many organisations employ a contingent workforce. Thus, gaining understanding of part-time workers is a necessity before sound policies can be made. Most previous research is largely based on demographic variables and differences between full-time and part-time workers‟ job attitudes. Work by Feldman and Doerpinghaus (1992) highlights that workers, with different contingent job arrangements, tend to have different work orientations and attitudes. Therefore, exploring on the topic of organisational commitment of part-time workers will contribute to the current research of non-standard work arrangement. Our study specifically involves the examination of the relationship between part-time work arrangements and organisational commitment. Significant correlation is found between organisational commitment and job satisfaction among part-time workers. Our data analysis results yield significant evidence for links between selected part-time work arrangements and organisational commitment. Moreover, affective and continuance components of organisational commitment are found to be more relevant in terms of determining organisational commitment of part-time workers.
