Lesson Transcript
Instructor: Molly Gigli

Molly has an MBA in HR and a BA in Organizational Leadership and Supervision.

Are you wondering how you can feel more committed to your job? Do you also wonder how you are contributing to your organization? Read on to find out more about job commitment and how it can not only benefit an organization, but you as well.

What Is Job Commitment?

Job commitment is the feeling of responsibility that a person has towards the mission and goals of an organization. When an individual has job commitment, he or she is more likely to perform tasks and responsibilities that will help an organization achieve a goal.

Identifying Strengths and Weaknesses

As an employee, it is important for you to identify and get to know your own strengths and weaknesses. When we use our strengths, we are doing our best work and that provides satisfaction. By using your strengths every day, you will improve your work and life satisfaction.

It is also important to ask for feedback on job performance from your manager. The more you request this, the better. When you consistently ask for feedback, your manager will more than likely talk with you on a regular basis. This helps to make it a more comfortable conversation.

Track Results

During your conversations with your manager, you'll want to keep him or her in the loop with your accomplishments. Keep track of your work. When you are tracking your work, it is just as important to track your results. It can be a smart idea to make your accomplishments known and to be aware of what you are providing to the organization. When you and others are aware of what you're providing, you will get a sense of pride and satisfaction.
