The association of team briefing and workers’ commitment was examined in this study. Respondents were drawn from a sample of 357 bankers in the South-south zone of Nigeria. Cross sectional survey design was utilized. With the use of Spearman Rank Order Correlation, we obtained the following results: team briefing had a significant positive relationship with affective, continuance and normative commitment. This suggests that workers remain with their organization because they are emotionally tied to the organization and feel morally obliged to remain as well as not wanting to lose their investment in the organization.


Key words: Team briefing, affective commitment, normative commitment, continuance commitment, two-way communication, employees’ voice.
