The study modeled employee commitment in the Nigerian manufacturing sector using Guinness Nigeria Plc as case study. The study ascertained the impact of reward systems, supervisor-subordinate relationship and opportunities for career development on employee commitment in the Nigerian manufacturing sector. The population of the study consists of all employees of Guinness Nigeria Plc, Benin City. A sample of one hundred (100) employees was randomly taken. A structured questionnaire was used to elicit data from respondents for the study. Out of the 100, eighty eight (88) were validly filled and returned. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used for data analyses. The findings revealed that reward system, supervisor-subordinate relationship and opportunity for career development positively and significantly impact employee commitment in Guinness Nigeria Plc. The study recommends that Guinness Nigeria Plc should sustain and improve on current strategy on reward system to enhance commitment among employees in the workplace. Also, cordial relationship between employees (subordinate) and supervisor should be sustained in the operations of organisations to promote trust and commitment in the workplace.
