Employee’s work commitment cannot be denied as a major contributor to job satisfaction organizational performances. However, an employee’s work commitment can be affected if no importance is given to psychological factors such as self-esteem. Organisation commitment is regarded as the feelings employees have towards their organisations and the commitment of employees is what permits them to either settle on a choice to remain or leave the organisations. The study explored the relationship between authoritative commitment and employee’s presentation in Non-profit Organisations in Nigeria by examining the relationship between self-esteem and employee work commitment level, the influence of self-esteem on the work commitment of employees in non-profit organisations in Nigeria, factors affecting employees of non-profit organisations in Nigeria and also identifying probable strategies in enhancing the productivity of the workers in the non-profit organisations in Nigeria. The study adopted the quantitative survey method through the administration of questionnaires in form of an online google form to respondents who are employees of non-governmental organisations in Nigeria. The study results indicated a significant relationship between the self-esteem of an individual working in a non-profit organisation and work commitment levels. The study also found that self-esteem is significantly correlated with employee job satisfaction in non-profit organisations and the lack of factors such as recognition for a job done, feeling secure about the job, enthusiasm to work, and a good relationship with work supervisors can serve as a bane to the employees of an organisation. The study, therefore, recommends that workplace policy should be tailored towards recognizing employee’s worth by internalizing the policy to result in positive self-evaluations of the employees.
