The objectives of this study were to identify the levels of affective commitment in a telecommunication organisation and to investigate the relationships between job demands, job resources and affective commitment. A cross-sectional survey design was used. The total available population of employees (N = 95) in the organisation participated in this study. The Job Demands-Resources Scale and the affective commitment Scale were used as measuring instruments. The results showed that the average affective commitment level of employees was above the Somaliland norm. Job resources, such as skill variety, task significance and task identity, were related to affective commitment of individuals. Job demands did not play a significant role in the affective commitment of employees.
