Compensation and Social Support on Continuance Commitment of Working Students in Adventist University of the Philippines
Keywords:Continuance Commitment, Compensation, Social Support
Continuance commitment is essential in our world today because employees have the fear that a loss of their jobs will affect their income and their livelihood. This is not an exception for working students. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Philippines has recounted that eight of the students are working student. Work-study is also an accepted practice of the most Seventh-day Adventist universities. This study seeks to investigate the continuance commitment of the students as related to compensation and social support. This study is correlational research design. Out of the 450, working students in AUP 100 were randomly sampled to answer the self-constructed questionnaires. The study used Pearson correlation to analysis the relationship and T-Test and ANOVA to analyze the difference. This study revealed that there is a high positive significant relationship between compensation and continuance commitment and a moderate positive significant relationship between social support and continuance commitment. Also, there was no significant difference in continuance commitment based on sex, age, and the number of units of the working students. The working students stay on their job because of the high compensation they receive from AUP and the moderate social support they get from their families, friends, and relatives. Both male and female working students are committed to staying on their job. The number of units did not deter the working students from being a commitment to their jobs. The study has revealed that the continuance commitment of working students is based on compensation and social support. The research recommends that in order to get the commitment of working students, the wage payments to them must be high with moderate social support.
