Secondly, to examine whether demographic factors (gender, age, working experience, and education level) act as moderators between work-related stressors, non-work related stressors and employees' commitment among staff in academic institution in Kota Kinabalu. Theoretical and managerial implications of the findings are also discussed. The findings generally confirmed all out of two independent variables hypotheses are supported in this study. In other words, there are significantly related between work related stressors and non-work related stressors as independent variables and employees' commitment as dependent variable.
