About Revised Commitment Scale
Powell and Meyer’s (2004) analysis of CC found that contrary to expectations, social-cost side bets predicted NC stronger than CC, and based on this speculation predicted that NC might be a ‘special form’ of CC. This idea has face validity since a perceived obligation to remain with the organization, particularly one based on reciprocity, could be experienced by the employee as a psychic ‘cost’, in the form of a guilty conscience, that would have to be incurred if the employee were to break the obligation and leave.
Similarly, Wasti (2002, p. 529), noting that Becker’s original commitment theory contemplated ‘generalized cultural expectations’ about remaining as an antecedent, says that “Becker has in effect proposed that CC does not develop from calculative costs only, but has normative bases (my emphasis) as well”. This further confounds the issue of discriminant validity of the NCS as measuring a distinct form of commitment, since it implies that NC might be an antecedent of CC.
