El objetivo de este artículo es analizar el efecto de las variables edad, género, nivel laboral y seguridad laboral en el compromiso de los empleados, en un contexto intensivo en conocimiento. Las investigaciones previas muestran la necesidad de conocer cómo determinadas variables facilitan el compromiso laboral, y nuestro objetivo es proporcionar nuevas evidencias. Se ha analizado una muestra de 167 médicos especialistas en alergología. Los resultados ayudan a clarificar las contradicciones encontradas en investigaciones previas, pues evidencian que la edad no afecta al compromiso laboral, mientras que el género, el nivel laboral y la seguridad laboral son variables que si que afectan al compromiso laboral.
