Abstract: This study explores antecedents of commitment among 1,300 municipal employees in three Chinese cities. Six potential antecedents, drawn from the rational choice and organizational behavior literatures, are investigated. Regression analysis indicates that role fit is the most important antecedent, followed by job challenge and management support. Extrinsic rewards and shared belief in the organization's mission and values are not as strongly or consistently related to commitment level. Compatible with findings from studies in Western countries, the results suggest that commitment among Chinese public employees may depend on the extent to which they experience their organization as being committed to them.
