The third of Allen and Meyer’s (1990) components of commitment, the ‘normative’ component, is similarly problematic, although for different reasons. A ‘feeling of obligation to remain with the company’ is unlikely to be rooted in economic advantage or disadvantage. It’s more likely to arise from favours done in the past, good or generous treatment, perhaps in times of personal difficulty, or the sense of an undischarged debt owed to the organization. In the end, though, an employee in this situation can begin to feel trapped.
Unfortunately it has a serious downside because a lack of diversity can lead to ‘groupthink’ (Janis, 1982), which is perhaps best summed up for this context as a dysfunctional inability to think differently. Organizations need their members to have independent perspectives, ideas and approaches, otherwise they are likely to become blind to changing environments and unreceptive to new and better ways of doing things. This independence of mind can’t happen if employees morph, over time, into clones of the senior managers and of each other.
