What is the TCM Employee Commitment Survey?

Employees respond to a series of statements pertaining to their relationship with the organization and their reason for staying.

In the original version of the survey, there are eight statements for each of three commitment scales: the Affective Commitment Scale (ACS), the Normative Commitment Scale (NCS) and the Continuance Commitment Scale (CCS).

In the revised version there are six statements for each form of commitment. The survey can be administered alone, or can be imbedded in more extensive paper and pencil or web-based organizational surveys.

The TCM Employee Commitment Survey is designed to measure three forms of employee commitment to an organization:


  1. 1. desire-based
        (affective commitment)

  2. 2. obligation-based
        (normative commitment)

  3. 3. cost-based
        (continuance commitment).
