The purpose of this research is to determine the influence of job satisfaction, organizational empowerment, organizational trust and career advancement opportunities on organizational commitment and whether gender differences play a role in moderating the above-mentioned relationships among the executives and non-executives workforce in the retail industry in Klang valley, Malaysia. Hierarchical regression analyses of 961 (39% return rate) responses revealed that job satisfaction, organizational empowerment and career advancement opportunities are important in determining employees’ commitment to the organization. In line to that, gender was found to moderate the relationship between job satisfaction and organizational commitment for female employees. On the other hand, gender was also found to moderate the relationship between career advancement opportunities and organizational commitment for male employees. Theoretical and managerial implications of the findings are discussed.
