ABSTRACT
The objective of this work is to contribute to validation of the Meyer and Allen Commitment Questionnaire for the call centre population in Portugal. According to the authors, organizational commitment is a psychological state, a mindset, a dependent variable that explains the link between individual and organization. Eighteen hundred employees (32.1% male; 56.9% female; M = 31.12 years, DP = 8.91) answered the Affective and Continuance scales of the tool. We carried out exploratory factor analysis with 30% of team members, randomly selected from the sample. The bi-dimensional solution was responsible for 51.1% of the total variability and reproduced the original structure proposed by the authors (item 13 was excluded due to loading in both factors). Confirmatory factor analysis was performed with the remaining 70% of the sample. According to the reference values, goodness of fit was evaluated as good –
/41 = 7.26; SRMR = .066, NFI = .922, CFI = .932, TLI =.909 – and acceptable according to RMSEA = .071 (90% CI, .063 to .078), p < .001, sustaining the Affective (α = .807) and Continuance (α = .717) dimensions.

Keywords: Call Centres, Organizations, Organizational Commitment, Affective Commitment, Continuance Commitment.
