Abstract: Commitment is one of the key factors that affects organizational performance. In this study, I tried to analyze relationship between employee commitment and organizational performance. A 17 items questionnaire with demographic questions was used to test the model. The survey was delivered to private and public banks in Erbil. I found out that there is a positive relationship between employee commitment and organizational performance. Furthermore public bank employees’ commitment level was higher than that of private bank.
