Abstract

This study is centered on inter-functional coordination in relation to organizational commitment in the hotel industry. Inter-functional coordination is defined in this study as the communication and sharing of information and resources, and integration and collaboration of different functional areas/departments. Organizational commitment is a psychological state that characterizes the employee’s relationship with the organization. It consists of three components: affective, continuance, and normative commitment. Using a sample of 300 non-supervisory employees from 15 hotels, this study investigates the effect of inter-functional coordination on the three dimensions of organizational commitment. Data will be examined using confirmatory factor analysis, ANOVA, and correlation analysis.
