For the long-term survival, the performance is very important part of the organization. If the performance could not maintain the organization, then the development could be minimized. There are various factors that could enhance performance. Among several factors, psychological empowerment (PE) and effective commitment (EC) are very important factors that could help to create effective increase in organizational performance (OP). In line with this, the current study aim is to configure the moderating effect off EC among the PE dimensions and OP of Thailand pharmaceutical sector. The data was collected from the employees that were working in the pharmaceutical sector. The Partial Least Square (PLS)-Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) results had indicated that enriched understanding of jobs task (EUJT) has a relationship that is positively and significantly associated with the organizational performance (OP). In the same vein, level of self-determination (LSD) had also an association with the OP that is positive and significantly associated with the OP. In contrast, overall impact on department (OIOD) has not any association with OP. While, indirect effect had shown that effective commitment (EC) is significantly moderating among two exogenous variables namely, EUJT, LSD and OP. Conversely, the OIOD did not moderated by EC. The above discussed findings could add a body of knowledge in previous literature that could provide help to increase the new insights for further research.
