Abstract:In this study the relation between proactive personality and affective organizational commitment was examined. Furthermore it was explored whether job stressors, workload, role ambiguity and role conflict had a moderating effect on this relationship. The results of a questionnaire among 170 employees of a German administrative governmental agency suggested that proactive personality is positively related to affective commitment. Furthermore all of the three job stressors had a negative effect on affective commitment. The findings revealed a buffering effect of role conflict on the relationship between proactive personality and affective organizational commitment. The influence of workload and role ambiguity on the relation of proactive personality was not found to be significant.
