ABSTRACT

The influence of organizational support on employee commitment has been acknowledged widely. However, there is scanty empirical investigation on the moderating influence of organizational support on the relationship between diversity reward and employee commitment. Therefore, this study sought to investigate the moderating influence of organizational support on the relationship between diversity reward and employee commitment in commercial banks in Kenya. A target sample of 384 respondents drawn from a sampling comprising top, supervisory, and lower cadre employees was obtained using stratified and simple random sampling techniques. From each stratum, a proportionate allocation was used to select a representative sample and the data collected by use of questionnaires. Data was analysed using descriptive, correlation and linear, hierarchical and step wise regression statistics. Findings of the study indicated that both diversity reward and organization support have a positive and significant influence on employee commitment. Furthermore, the findings also revealed that organizational support has a positive and significant moderating influence on the relationship between diversity reward and employee commitment. These findings suggest and recommend that more emphasis should focus on the need for organizations to help their employees accomplish their tasks as they get to grow professionally and become more committed to the organization.
