Retention commitment of United States Army initial term and mid-career soldiers in Iraq: A comparison of Meyer and Allen's three component model of Organizational CommitmentLouis Lopez, Jr.
This study continues the exploration of the correlation between Organizational Commitment and the decision to reenlistment by initial term and mid-career U.S. Army soldiers. Also, the study measured intent to leave in correlation with organizational commitment scale and other factors that effected commitment to stay or leave the organization (i.e., bonus incentive for reenlistment commitment, well-being programs, and family decision to stay or leave the Army, organization environment satisfaction, basic human needs, and demographic variables). A quantitative design was used to collect survey questionnaire data from a random stratified sample of 2,649 initial term and mid-career soldier which yielded 467 good surveys from soldiers deployed to Iraq for one year. Findings indicated several differences between Organizations A1-A8, the results of the study suggesting: (a) organizations must commit themselves and adjust their personnel practices in accordance to its environment of operation, (b) a bonus incentive for reenlistment commitment is significant for at least 41% of the respondents, (c) the organization's leadership must continue to reward and recognize its soldiers (29% of respondents met this need), (d) the organization's leadership must continue to improve relations with its soldiers/family members, and (e) the organization's leadership must continue to create a learning environment where empowerment of its soldiers is priority.
