The concept of diversity and its management has become an important issue in the global workforce as a result of globalization. But managing diversity in the organization has been a challenge. Employees are not committed due to diverse challenges as a result of workplace diversity. What then is the relationship between demographic diversity in the workplace and organizational commitment to an organization? The study aims at examining the relationship between workplace diversity (age, gender, and education) and organizational commitment (affective, normative, and continuance commitments). The findings of the study show that workers commitment is influenced by demographic diversity that exist within an organization.
