Organizational culture describes the procedures in which employees behave in a firm. Organizational culture can be seen as the exceptional design of common goals, behaviors, customs, principles, values, opportunities, socialization and expectations of individuals in the company. Organizational culture is therefore associated with the character of the company, showing people’s behavior even when they are not directed regarding their tasks. Research studies stated that organizational culture puts a substantial impact on corporate culture, especially in the field of competence, efficiency and commitment of employees. This mean that by emerging a suitable organizational culture, companies can achieve success. That’s why there is necessity to study the impact of organizational culture on individual’s commitment to the company. (Clugston, Kennedy, Denison 1984)
It is assumed that organizational culture impacts individual’s sense of commitment, empathy and belongingness to work place. Lokand Crawford noticed that such thoughts might rationally be expected to make an impact on employee’s commitment. The study is important for quickly emerging country such as Pakistan as there is great necessity to understand how organizational culture create values in forming positive behavior of employees towards organizational commitment. This could help in improving behaviors of employees at workplace which will lead to employee commitment. Tentatively, it is imperious to improve our understanding of how organizational culture impacts employees commitment in a developing country like Pakistan. Finally the research findings will help managers in decision making especially in the field of hiring, recruitment, up gradation, training, motivation and instituting in organizational culture. (Lok and Crawford 2004)
Employee commitment is defined as, “the degree to which an employee identifies with the organization and wants to continue actively participating in it”.

The interest in this topic is due to the fact the employee commitment is an important elements which is compulsory for organizational success. When employee is strongly committed with an organization then there are less chances for disloyalty with company. Employee empowerment, job satisfaction, performance appraisal and employee retention formulates a strong foundation for organizational commitment. Because of the importance of employee commitment several research studies has been conducted to check out the importance of relationship between organizational culture and employee commitment. (George, Allen, Mackenzie 2003)
According to Nelson, employee commitment is very worthy for the sound growth of organization. Intensified or demotivated employees are unproductively affect the work place environment continuously. In today’s world if employees need are not fully satisfied they will become demotivate which will cause ultimate problems for organization. Because without human capital you can’t even think of doing business. So Nelson, in his research findings put a great emphasize on employee’s commitments. If today you show care for your employees then they will show care for your clients. It’s just like a give and take relation. So employee commitment in any business is very important. Now old trends have been changed when people say that make your customers happy, but in today’s world make your employees happy they will make your customers happy. So Nelson stated that adopt a friendly culture in your office so that employee can feel relaxed at work place, when he/ she feels relaxed then he/ she will show performance as well. (Nelson, Allen, Shenroy 2002)
