Institutional trust and organisational commitment on the example of a healthcare entity

Title variants
Languages of publication
Growing requirements on the labour market and competition make commitment a prominent issue. This pertains mostly to healthcare entities, where quality and commitment of medical staff is a crucial determinant of goal attainment in a given entity. One of the factors that affect the level of commitment is trust. Forming a climate of trust has a considerable meaning for the functioning of the healthcare system and its constituents. Trust impacts all operations taken by an organisation and serves as the starting point for the implementation of other management methods and techniques. The study presents results of empirical research, which show a correlation between institutional trust and components of organisational commitment in a healthcare entity.
