Due to the importance of it this study explored and discussed the relationship between employee’s work stress and organizational commitment. Moreover, it also analyzed the moderator effect that the employee personality has on the relationship between work stress and organizational commitment. In order to reach this goal the present study was focused in the important Maquila Industry at Central America, which represents a 17.3% of the total economic activity of Honduras. Despite of, the importance and influence that this industry has on the Honduran economy, still the research using as an object of analysis the employees that work on the production department of this industry is really limited. On this study the SPSS software was used to analyze that data gathered among the production department employees at the Maquila Industry in Honduras. The correlation and hierarchical regression gave evidence that work stress and its variables have an effect on the employees overall organizational commitment. On the other hand, work stress is negatively related to the affective and continuance commitment but it showed no relation to normative commitment. Finally, only one of the five personality traits: conscientiousness show to have a moderator effect on the relationship between work stress and organizational commitment. This study contributes and gives more information to the organizations in the Maquila Industry in order to help them to know more in deep the real situation of their employees at the production department.
