The examination of the multiple-commitment theory and the threecomponent commitment ·model, two leading approaches in the research of work commitment, lacks empirical evidence outside North America, and especially, the combination of the theory and model is still new. This study, based on a sample of 502 employees in Vietnam, examined the theory and model simultaneously in combination, using the three-component commitment model to measure organizational and occupational commitments. The results evidenced the three-component structures of organizational and occupational commitments, and supported the mediation of commitment components on the effects of commitments'antecedents on work outcomes. Affective and normative organizational· commitment, and normative occupational commitment had negative effects on turnover intention. Organizational commitment and continuance occupational commitment had positive effects on external career success, while only occupational commitment (affective & continuance) had positive effects on internal career success. No commitment component had significant effect on job performance. This study suggests that a mixed approach combining the theory and model is . appropriate in the study of work commitment, and this approach should be further examined especially in other developing and Asian countries. For managers in Vietnam, this study implies that understanding the relationships among variables analyzed in this study, in combination with their experiential knowledge, they can create better solutions to increase and maintain employees' work commitment in order to increase major work outcomes.
