Abstract

Employees are the organizations primary asset, and they determine the fate of the organization. Employees should be motivated, committed, and enthusiastic in their job to produce a productive output. Hence, the study aims to determine the effect of workplace empowerment on employee commitment mediated by the quality of work life. The primary data comes from distributing survey questionnaires and conducting an interview. The 60 respondents are employees from the logistics company located in Quezon Province. They are under finance, sales, human resources, logistics and warehouse, motor pool, and security and maintenance. The sampling method is total enumeration. The survey questionnaire consists of 45 items using a 5-point Likert scale. An interview is also conducted with nine questions. A descriptive causal research design is used for the data analysis, and regression analysis is used to test the hypotheses. The results of this study show that workplace empowerment (support, opportunity, resources, and power) does not significantly affect employee commitment. However, as workplace empowerment is treated as a whole, it significantly affects employees commitment. Furthermore, the result shows the quality of work-life has a full mediation effect. This study developed a CAPSTONE Project to support employee development by conducting training seminars about work-life balance.
