AbstractHEI in India is plagued by many problems, one of the most noticeable being the high rate of
attrition and turnover. While several factors account for turnover, one of the reasons for most
employees is the lack of identification and belongingness with their institutions. The affection,
however, does not evolve in a day and requires perennial nurturing from transformational
leaders. Transformational Leaders pervade a feeling of belongingness among employees for their
organization through transcendence of employees’ personal interests for organizational interests.
The relationship between Transformational Leaders and Affective Commitment, though, is not
necessarily linear or direct and can be better understood through identification of mediating
variables. The present study assumes that perception of followers about characteristics of their
job (JC) is the key psychological instrument in explaining relation between Transformational
Leadership (TL) and Affective Commitment(AC).
