There has been lesser evidence regarding the factors driving the commitment from countries like Pakistan. The purpose of present research was to find out the factors affecting the organizational commitment of the officers in the banking industry of Pakistan. The hypothesized relationship between variables rests on the foundations of social exchange theory, the perceived organizational support theory, and the Gouldner’s norm of reciprocity. The quantitative data was collected through self-administered closed ended questionnaire. The questionnaire was filled by 47 Grad II officers of different banks in the Metropolitan city of Lahore. The criteria for inclusion in sample were those having passed their probationary period. The data was analyzed using SPSS version 16.0. The correlations showed that the strength of relationship between factors affecting commitment and organizational commitment is higher. There are five factors which affect the organizational commitment of bank officers. These factors include organizational rewards both monetary and non-monetary, supervisor support, career development opportunities, work-family support, and favorable job conditions. The results of study may be beneficial for devising such policies as to reduce the employees’ turnover which has been an area of major concern for the human resource professionals especially in the context of Pakistani banking sector.
