The liner regression was used for data analysis. the meaning of work had significant association with organizational commitment (P<0.001) and predicts 13% of the variance. The relations of meaning of work with affective and normative dimensions of organizational commitment were significant (P<0.001) and predict 16% and 5% of the variance respectively. There was not significant association between meaning of work and continuous organizational commitment (P>0.05). the presence of positive work meaningfulness accompany with higher levels of commitment to the organization.
