Abstract


The article aims to provide an insight into the relationship among political behavior, trust in manager and organizational commitment in sports organizations. The research is designed with a descriptive and relational survey model which is one of the qualitative research methods. The research group consists of 109 employees (48 females, 61 males) working in Erzincan Youth Services and Provincial Directorate of Sports, selected with convenience sampling method, one of the non-random sampling methods. As data collection tools, Personal Information Form, Organizational Commitment Scale, Trust in Manager Scale and Political Behavior Scale were used. SPSS 22 package program was used to analyze the data. Arithmetic mean, frequency and standard deviation were used in the statistical representations of the data. For the normality of the data, skewness and kurtosis values were taken into consideration and the data were found to have a normal distribution. Pearson correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis were used to analyze the data. The results of the study show that there is a negative relationship between the sub-dimensions of the political behavior scale and the sub-dimensions of the trust in manager scale. Similarly, as the values of the sub-dimensions of the political behavior scale increase, the organizational commitments of the participants decrease. According to the results of multiple regression analysis, the sub-dimension of cognition-based trust, one of the sub-dimensions of trust in manager scale, is an important predictor of affective commitment, which is one of the sub-dimensions of organizational commitment scale. One of the statistically significant results of multiple regression analysis is that acting two-faced sub-dimension of the political behavior scale is a significant predictor of continuance commitment, which is one of the sub-dimensions of organizational commitment scale.
