A questionnaire made up of 54 items, with a Likert scale, was applied to this population. The results show that the elements of commitment to the organization are very present in the labor integration process, such as organizational identification, involvement in work and loyalty to the organization, which indicates that there is a great sense of belonging. In addition to this, it is concluded that, although there is a high level of absenteeism from work, this is related to sociodemographic factors, such as the fact that female personnel are committed to their children, support for the family, marital status and age.
