Abstract: Human resources have become the key source of competitive advantage for the organizations that strive in challenging environments. In order to retain and satisfy their employees, organizations should design their human resource (HR) functions and practices consistent with the expectations of their employees. In this sense, organizational commitment of employees has become very important for especially retaining the employees in the organization. Human resource managers can increase the organizational commitment levels of their employees by designing HR functions and practices according to their expectations and by that way employees can feel that they are the most important assets of the organizations. The purpose of the research is to investigate the relationship between organizational commitment dimensions and HR practices. Also determining the perceptions of employees for organizational commitment levels and HR practices is another purpose of this research. According to the results of the research it will be possible to give insights that can contribute to develop organizational commitment by HR practices in organizations.
