The research intended to explore relationship between organizational
cynicism, work related quality of life and organization commitment in
employees. The sample comprised of 150 male participants working on
managerial position of different companies in Lahore. Assessment
measures included Organizational Cynicism Scale (Brandes, Dean, &
Dhartwadkar, 1999), Work-Related Quality of Life scale (Easton,
Edwards, & Laar, 2009), Organizational Commitment Questionnaire
(Allen, Meyer, & Smith, 1993) and a demographic questionnaire. Results
of the Pearson product moment correlation analysis showed that three of
the dimensions of organizational cynicism had significant negative
relationship with five of the dimensions of work related quality of life and
two of the dimensions of organizational commitment. Moreover two of the
dimensions of work related quality of life had significant negative
relationship with two of the dimensions of organizational commitment.
Structural Equation Modeling through AMOS revealed that working
conditions mediated the relationship between affective cynicism and
affective commitment. Implications for present study in organizations will
be to lessen the negative attitudes in employees so they can work
effectively and increase their productivity in respective companies and the
work efficiency, quality of work life and commitment should be improved.
