This study is based on a review of the literature on workplace commitment(Cohen, 2000; Morrow, 1993; Randall & Cote, 1991). Commitment is an important multifaceted construct but also one that is hard to define. Given this, this study starts from identifying that how previous research has suggested various conceptualizations for workplace commitment. The aim of this review on workplace commitment is to suggest that team commitment should be considered as one of important commitment foci in the workplace. The implication of this study is that subsequent operationalization, analysis and inference has overlooked differences between these commitment forms, leading to an oversimplified account of employee commitment that mixes together different forms of commitment.
