Abstract [en]

Previous research has shown that there is a relationship between trust and organizational commitment. Our research questions were if the three trust-variables ability, benevolence and integrity predict organizational commitment differently. Further we examined if the length of employment affected the relationship between benevolence and organizational commitment. Due to the fact that past studies has shown that benevolence develop during a longer period of time than do the other trust-variables. We made a survey using questionnaires (n=50) in a “caretaking facility” and using a multiple regression analysis we found that ability was a significant predictor (p=0.032) for organizational commitment. The result of a partial correlation test showed that the length of employment did not affect the relationship between benevolence and organizational commitment. Finally we discussed reasons why ability was the only predictor that could explain organizational commitment in this study.

Abstract [sv]

Tidigare forskning har visat att det finns en relation mellan tillit och engagemang för organisationen. Våra frågeställningar var om de tre tillitsvariablerna Ability, Benevolence och Integrity predicerar engagemang för organisationen olika mycket. Vidare undersökte vi om anställningstiden påverkade relationen mellan Benevolence och engagemang för organisationen. Eftersom tidigare studier visat att Benevolence tar längre tid att utveckla än de övriga tillitsvariablerna. Vi gjorde en enkätundersökning (n=50) på en omsorgsverksamhet och fann genom en multipel regressionsanalys att Ability var en signifikant prediktor (p=0.032) till engagemang för organisationen.  Resultatet av en partiell korrelation visade att anställningstiden inte påverkade relationen mellan Benevolence och engagemanget. Slutligen diskuterade vi varför Ability var den enda prediktorn som kunde predicera engagemang för organisationen i denna studie.
