This paper reports the results of an assessment of the mediating impact of perceived organizational support between ethical culture and employees’ commitment to a firm. The results are based upon a convenience sample size of 101employees from Australian travel agencies. After determining valid and reliable measurement instruments, a series of regressions indicated a partial mediation effect for POS between ethical culture and organizational commitment. This means that firms exhibiting an ethical culture, but also providing adequate support to their employees will gain and advantage by having more committed employees. Future research is also discussed.
