The study was conducted to examine the organisational commitment of employees/subcontracted labourers,who were employed by using outsourcing method at 15 hospitals affiliated with the Public Hospitals Administration of Turkey in the province of Sanliurfa and Harran University Research and Application Hospital to determine the correlation between demographic variables and organisational commitment. Organisational Commitment Scale with 18 items, developed by Allen and Meyer (1990), was used in the study. It was determined that the reliability rate of the Organisational Commitment Scale was 0.89 and this rate for its subscales was 0.90 for affective commitment, 0.77 forcontinuance commitment, and 0.75 for normative commitment. A statistically significant difference was found between the organisational commitment levels of employees participating in the study in terms of age, gender, marital status, educational background, and occupation. There was no statistically significant difference between the groups only in terms of working duration. A positive correlation was determined between demographic characteristics and organisational commitment.
