This study is quantitative in its approach and an explanatory in its design. It examines the total effect of reward practice, supportive behavior, work environment and job satisfaction on employee’s effort commitment using data from 297 employees holding a position of professional science (ps) from head quarters of public ministerial offices in Ethiopia. The correlation analysis results have shown that the working environment (r=.513) has strong relationship with employee’s effort commitment. The organization’s reward practice (r=.333) and job satisfaction (r=.430) have moderate relationship with employee’s effort commitment. However, the prevailing supportive behavior (r=.192) had weak relationship with employee’s effort commitment. The explanatory power as shown by adjusted R square indicates that 39.4% of the variation in employee’s effort commitment is explained by factors that are considered as influencing factors for the present study. Therefore, organizational leaders should pay attention to influencing factors considered in this study to alter their employee’s effort commitment.
