Summary / Abstract:

ENSports organizations often face volunteers’ retention problems. A small volunteers’ involvement in the activities of the organization may lead to a declining commitment. Volunteer without any feeling of attachment to the organization can easily quit volunteering or change it. Long-term relations’ development between the volunteers and sports organizations can improve activities and increase competitiveness. Organizational commitment can lead to volunteers’ decision to continue volunteering in sports organizations. However, it is important to clarify commitment factors of volunteers’ organizational commitment to sport organization which affects volunteers’ commitment the most. Scientific sources highlight that volunteers usually commit to the sport organization by certain emotional aspects. However, these aspects can vary depending on different conditions. In order to better identify volunteers’ commitment to sports organization it is important to assess the commitment with regard to these conditions. The aim of this study was to assess volunteers’ commitment factors to sport organization and determine these factors’ influence on volunteer’s decision to continue volunteering. This study analyses commitment of one sport organization volunteers. The present study used T. Schlesinger et al. (2013) questionnaire. This instrument was based on Nagel (2006) multidimensional measurement concept designed for analysing volunteers’ commitment to sports organizations. The volunteers were analysed from different sport organization positions, so this allowed assessing commitment factors from different perspectives. In order to exclude factors of volunteer’s commitment, exploratory factor analysis was applied. Three factors of volunteers’ commitment were excluded they were labelled as follows: social attachment, open communication and emotional attachment.Key findings of this study show that volunteers are committed to sports organizations by emotional and social aspects. Open communication did not show that much effect on volunteers’ commitment, but this factor was assessed with higher marks by volunteers’ taking higher volunteering position and involved in sport organization for a long time, which means this factor can predict volunteers’ commitment but just in other conditions. Finally, there was not strong relationship between commitment and tendency to quit volunteering; however we can say that at some point volunteers’ decision to continue volunteering can be influenced by social aspects.
