A fit between organizational culture and employees’ values enhances their commitment towards service excellence. Hence assessing organisational culture is critical to engendering employee commitment. This study was therefore conducted to examine the influence of organizational culture on the commitment to service excellence of the management support staff of College of Technology Education of the University of Education Winneba. Specifically, four dimensions of organizational culture were examined, namely: clan culture, adhocracy culture, market culture and hierarchical culture. Samples for the study were collected by the convenience sampling technique. Data was collected by the use of questionnaires and analysed with SPSS through descriptive statistics. The findings indicate that hierarchical culture is the topmost factor underlying employees’ commitment to service excellence at the college. The findings depicts that existing organisational cultures have significant effects on the organizational commitment of employees; the clan culture does not have significant effects on the commitment of management support staff to service excellence. The study also found that the commitment of management support staff to service excellence is not predicted by a culture of adhocracy.
