Abstract: 

Non cognitive intelligences are currently drawing the attention of researchers. The role of these intelligences is remarkable especially within the workplace. This study examines the influence of spiritual and emotional intelligences on the organizational commitment among a Tunisian university staff. 54 employees were surveyed through a questionnaire composed of: King’s (2008) spiritual intelligence scale (SISRI 24), the Wong and Law’s (2002) emotional intelligence scale (WLEIS) and the Meyer et al.’s (1993) six-item scales of affective, continuance and normative commitment. Using Pearson correlation coefficient and linear regression analysis, the results revealed the positive impact of spiritual and emotional intelligences on the organizational commitment.
