Abstract – This study explored on high-performance work practices (HPWP) extent of implementation and affective commitment in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). A descriptive-quantitative design was utilized to determine the extent to which employees perceive that the organization implements HPWP in terms of ability, motivation and opportunity; and the perception of the employees towards affective commitment in HEIs. The empirical data of the study was based on the responses from seventy (70) teachers in HEIs. Findings revealed in general that employees perceived that the organization always implement high-performance work practices in terms of ability and motivation but only often in opportunity. Additionally, respondents agree that teachers are affectively committed to their organizations. Furthermore, HEIs recognize the importance of implementing high-performance work practices and that it affects the affective commitment of the employees. Employees with strong affective commitment will continue to work in the organization and will lead to fewer turnovers.
