FONSECA, Carlos Alberto Monsores da  and  BASTOS, Antonio Virgílio Bittencourt. Creativity and organizational commitment: their relationship with work performance perception. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2003, vol.3, n.1, pp. 61-88. ISSN 1984-6657.

Nowadays, as change has become the rule in organizations and the stability proposed by the neoclassical economists is fading away, creativity, commitment and an adequate form to stimulate and appraise work performance are seeked by organizations, which strive to incorporate them to their culture. Due to the lack of research relating those three constructs the purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between organizational commitment and the perception of stimulant and obstacle factors to creativity in the work environment with the work performance. The research was realized with a random sample of 750 employees of an organization in the financial sector; these subjects were selected from branches of diferent sizes ln the country. The data was collected by means of a questionnarie and the results were analyzed by means of tests of assoclation and regression. They confirmed the hypothesis that the perception one has of his or hers performance in relation to the work group where he or she works is stronger in the environments where creativity in work is stimulated and where significant levels of organizational commitment exist
