CARVALHO, Virgínia D.  e  ALMEIDA, Cleusimar Cardoso Alves. Personal values and affective commitment in municipal social assistance councils. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.4, pp. 476-484. ISSN 1984-6657.

Research on affective commitment has been growing over recent decades, focusing on several organizational environments, although Municipal Councils are a yet unexplored reality, notwithstanding the relevance of their social function. Aiming to address this gap as well as provide further evidence about the role of personal values as antecedents of affective commitment, this study analyzed the relationship between these two constructs in the context of Social Assistance councils in the state of Minas Gerais. A sample of 204 participants responded to the Personal Values Profile Questionnaire (PQ-21) and the Affective Commitment Scale (ECOA). Regression analyses showed that the benevolence and power motivational types, as well as the high order value type of self-transcendence, predicted affective commitment. The relationship with power was negative. Study limitations and practical implications are discussed with suggestions for future research.
