Abstract: The current research has been done to understand the effect of organizational commitment on job satisfaction and to investigate the demographic factors influencing job satisfaction.233 valid questionnaire responses were received from the employees of an Information technology (IT) sector organization situated in Odisha to know the impact of organizational commitment on their job satisfaction level. Correlation analysis was conducted to find out the intercorrelation between job satisfaction and Organizational commitment and regression analysis was done to know the interrelationship between two or more independent variables with the dependant variable. The findings indicated all aspects of organizational commitment were highly correlated with job satisfaction and significantly influenced job satisfaction. Descriptive analysis results showed that advancement opportunities and timely increase in salary and perks constituted the key factors for increase in level of satisfaction of the employees and secondly gender, age and job experience did not have a positive association with job satisfaction. This research also revealed that IT managers must make fair decisions and concentrate on increasing the allied benefits of their employees so that they feel satisfied and contented with their job. They feel motivated and contribute accordingly for the organization. Satisfied employees promote a sense of responsibility towards the smooth functioning of the organization and exhibit Organization Citizenship Behaviour (OCB).
