by Baylor, Ebony L., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2014, 167 pages; 3642711

Abstract:

This study examined the corporate university experience, which consisted of two elements, time since participation and participation type with frequency to explore trends and influence on workplace motivation and affective commitment. An online survey utilizing 8-items from the Survey of Perceived Organizational Support and 8-items from the Organizational Commitment Questionnaire in Likert-Scale used Pearson's Correlations to determine the significance of the existence of a relationship between corporate university experience, workplace motivation and affective commitment. This study did not find the existence of a relationship between employee participation in corporate universities and workplace motivation, or the existence of a relationship between employee participation in corporate universities and affective commitment.
