dc.description.abstract Family Businesses are the most prevalent form of business throughout the world; they are highly pertinent in developing economies (Cavusgil, Kandemir & Kim, 2004). In South Africa it is estimated that 84 percent of all businesses in the formal sector are family-owned (Balshaw, 2004). Even though family businesses represent a dominant form of economic organisation, there is neglect in terms of research, particularly with respect to development of theories that have applied value (Chrisman, Chua & Steier, 2003). The key focus of this study is to provide research evidence for the verification of the predictive model Resulting Commitment Behaviours (hereafter referred to as RCBs) and the relationship(s) of the antecedent’s: Individual Characteristics, Familial Cultural Socialisation and Contextual Factors might have with an employed family member’s RCBs. en_US
