An online questionnaire was designed which was duly answered by 428 respondents of Northern India by applying Partial least squares Structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM) version 2.0.

The paper presents a very important insight for the administrators and HR experts in educational organisations to redefine their HR strategies so that higher levels of organisational commitment are achieved.
