Abstract

The Information Technology (IT) industry in India is driven by a large pool of talented technically competent employees. However, at times, these intellectual capitals are neglected by the organizations. This can affect the employee morale, job commitment levels and eventually cripple the business. The primary objective of this paper is to analyze the relationship between the perceived levels of job commitment and intellectually stimulating factors. A cross-sectional study was conducted on a sample size of 150 IT professionals across six companies in Bangalore and Mysore regions, Karnataka. The perceived levels of job commitment in the presence and absence of intellectually stimulating factors were tested using parametric approach. The outcome of the study revealed that in the presence of intellectually stimulating factors, employees are more content with their jobs and their commitment to the job is stronger.
