Ana Laura Uscanga Arévalo, Augusto Renato Pérez Mayo, Nohemí Roque Nieto


This article measures two organizational factors of importance for every organization: labor satisfaction and organizational commitment. The analysis is made under the perspective of the sociology of organizations: Frederick Herzberg's theory of the two factors of motivation (hygienic and motivational) and Meyer and Allen's model of the three components of organizational commitment (1990). The methodology is empirical, descriptive and quantitative. The study was carried out with a sample of 59 employees, classified as reliable personnel of the Academic Secretary of an Institution of Higher Education (IES) in the city of Cuernavaca, Morelos. The instruments used were two questionnaires emanated from the theory itself with the purpose of knowing aspects related to the two study variables. This instrument allowed to identify the types of organizational commitment and the levels of work satisfaction and satisfaction that exist in the university organization.
