Abstract

Scholars have discussed different types of embeddedness: structural, cognitive, political and normative (Le Breton & Miller, 2009) and different types of commitment: affective, normative, and continuance (Allen & Meyer, 1990). Moreover, some have further broken down continuance commitment into calculative and imperative commitment (Sharma & Irving, 2005). The research question we pose in this paper is as follows: are different types of family embeddedness associated with different types of family and non-family employees’ commitment to the family firm?
