Abstract


For the understanding of economic and cultural advancement in a society, higher education is one of the key factors.Present study intended to examine the role of hierarchy culture as a moderator on the relationship between work
motivation and work commitment among university teachers. The study design was based on quantitative methods.
Sample comprised of 351 teachers from public universities of Punjab, Pakistan. Multivariate analysis and
descriptive statistics were performed using Smart PLS 3.0. Findings confirmed the moderating effects of hierarchy
culture. The findings have implications for policy makers to take advantage of work motivation because motivated
teachers preserve commitment despite the controlled and structured features of hierarchy culture. Study findings
also propose the development of supportive culture to enhance work commitment.
