Despite decades of interest in the organizational and managerial factors that influence an individual s attachment to the organization, very little is known about the personal characteristics that may influence an individual s interpersonal relations at work and attachment to the organization. In the context of a changing workplace, in which greater importance is being placed on worker interpersonal skills and organizational commitment, individual differences in adult attachment styles represent a potentially important determinant of intrapersonal and interpersonal criteria as well as organizational commitment. The purpose of this research was to empirically validate a work-related measure of adult attachment and to examine the criterion-related validity of this measure for work outcomes and organizational commitment.
