This study examined how affective commitment influences the relationships among rewards management, organization justice, and turnover intent in a collectivist country. Data were gathered from 154 Filipino employees through an online survey. Moderated mediation using Haye’s PROCESS model was used for analysis. Results revealed that rewards management significantly predicts organization justice. Turnover intent was also directly predicted by rewards management and its relationship with rewards management was partially mediated by organization justice. Affective commitment significantly moderates the relationship between organization justice, rewards management, and turnover intent. Findings of this research contribute to both knowledge and organization practice by illustrating how turnover intent is reduced through effective and equitable management of rewards especially among employees with low levels of affective commitment to work organizations in a collectivist society.
