Abstract

Presents findings of empirical research in Greek public, quasi‐public, and private organizations. Results show that commitment of managers decreases as we progress along a continuum from private towards publicly‐owned organizations; managers report the existence of a gap between the perceived and the desired organizational culture of their firm, and this “culture gap” tends to increase as we move from the private towards the public sector; organizational commitment appears to be influenced negatively by the culture gap, therefore this gap offers a plausible explanation for the lower commitment in public sector firms.
