Abstract


Corporate culture is a critical factor in enhancing the attainment of organizational goals and objectives. This
study examined the impact of four corporate cultural variables namely, involvement, consistency, adaptability,
and mission on employee commitment to the organization. Data was collected from 134 employees of 18
selected SMEs in Makurdi metropolis. Data was collected through the use of standardized questionnaires
measuring corporate culture and organizational commitment. Analysis of data was done using pearson
correlation coefficient, regression analysis, independent T-test and ANOVA. The study found that involvement
and adaptability significantly correlated with commitment, while consistency and mission did not correlate with
commitment. The implications of the findings were discussed and recommendations made.
