The present study was sought to clarify various antecedents of organizational identification and affective commitment. Data were obtained from 444 employees of various public and private organizations. Two hierarchical regression analysis were conducted to find out the differences in the relationships of organizational identification, affective commitment and their antecedents. It was found that strength of organizational identity, perceived external prestige, person-organization fit and need for affiliation predicted both organizational identification and affective commitment. Besides this, organization-based self-esteem predicted organizational identification but not affective commitment, and job satisfaction predicted affective commitment but not organizational identification. It was also found that self-esteem, distributional justice, procedural justice and interactional justice were not predicted any of these constructs.
