Does an employee’s contractual status affect their commitment?

Does an employee’s contractual status affect the commitment they feel towards an organisation? This is the question City Centre recruitment based in Bournemouth, Southampton, Weymouth and Yeovil are trying to assist Amy Wood, a final year Business Studies student at Bournemouth University, answer for her dissertation.

Amy’s synopsis of her study is as follows:

The increased variation of contract types and work time flexibility has led to a new branch of study into the effect this has on employees’ attitudes, health and behaviour. This research paper proposes to fill the knowledge gap between the focus on employee attitudes and organizational commitment by bringing these concepts together to analyse how contractual status (both perceived and literal) affects an employee’s commitment to a company through behaviour and attitude to the organisation.

This research will focus on individual employees’ engagement specific to their attitude and behaviour within their job role, including intent to leave, motivation and their feelings towards the organisation; with the intention to show the differences that occur as a result of contract variations. This study could provide insights into how to effectively integrate internal and external employees.

Working within the catering, chefs, engineering, manufacturing and cleaning arenas providing both temporary and permanent workers into a whole range of companies through Dorset, Somerset and Hampshire City Centre recruitment were fascinated by this study and results it will generate.

We expect the results will give us an ability to help advise our clients on their best staffing solutions. Temporary staff are generally perceived as less committed than people in permanent jobs. This study will put this statement to the test.

To assist Amy in her dissertation and to ultimately assist us all in knowing a little more about our workforce please can you spend 5 minutes of your time filling in the survey. The survey is completed in an anonymous way. The data collated through this survey will form the basis of her findings and conclusions so please complete in an open and honest way as possible.

So as to gain as great a sample opinion as possible please can you share this blog with your colleagues and connections.

Full results of Amy’s findings on contractual status affecting employees commitment will be published and commented on later on in the year once all the data is collated and analysed. City Centre recruitment and Amy Wood would like to thank you in advance for your time and look forward to revealing the results.
