ABSTRACT

In this research, it is aimed to determine the level of organizational forgiveness and organizational commitment of teachers and their relation. Descriptive method was used in the research. The working population of the research: Teachers who work in primary schools and high schools in the Battalgazi and Yeşilyurt district centers in Malatya province during the 2017-2018 academic year. A total of 450 teachers from 6 primary schools and 6 high schools selected by means of population sampling were included in the study. Two scales, "organizational forgiveness" and "organizational commitment", were used to collect the data of the study. In the analysis of the data, arithmetic mean standard deviation calculation, t-test and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) were performed. According to the findings obtained as a result of the research, it was seen that there was a significant difference between school type, education status and occupational seniority variables while there was no significant difference between teachers' organizational forgiveness and gender, marital status, number of children and field of study. Participants' organizational commitment levels were low at both overall sum and dimensions. There was a low level of positive relationship between organizational forgiveness and organizational commitment. Based on these findings, teachers' awareness about organizational forgiveness and the necessity of providing jobs in order to increase school commitment and suggestions such as personal rights, profession promotion, purchasing power and working conditions can be improved.
