Abstract

Every organization wants and need employees that perform at their best in each and every aspect of their work. This, in terms, leads to an increase in organizational efficiency and to the development of competitive advantages in relationship with other competitors. But how can organizations develop a working environment in which employees give their full commitment to organizational strategic goals? What are the cultural elements that drive people to develop the necessary beliefs and behaviors in order to fully commit to an organization? In what manner does the leadership of an organization contribute to the increase of individual commitment? The main objective of this article is to identify and analyze possible correlations between certain elements of transformational leadership and employee commitment. One of the main challenges that companies face in present times is the constant shift in the business environment that requires a high level of flexibility and adaptation. Given the fact that employees are the company’s front line by coming in contact with customers, it is paramount that their behavior and commitment is focused on providing the highest value for the market. For this reason, managers need to fully understand how to motivate individuals in order to become completely involved in their work and in offering their contribution to organizational success. The findings presented in the paper can help managers and leaders in their efforts to retain employees and to increase their involvement in the long-term sustainable development of the organization in which they work.
