The protection of personal privacy in the work space and its possible conflict with corporation interest has long been a difficult dilemma for employers. Enterprises have also long been wondering how a balance between protection of personal privacy and procurement of interests of the corporation can be reached. Moreover, in recent years several incidents of personal information being leaked, has further drawn the public's attention towards this issue. To maintain the corporation's image, avoid breaching the law, as well as protect the employees' rights, and thus build a sense of trust between the employer and employee; the commitment of protecting the employees' privacy has become even more important. With the awareness of working rights on the rise, as well as the implementation of privacy protection law in Taiwan, the protection of employees' personal information has been escalated from a management issue to a legal issue. However, when it comes to privacy protection protocols, most corporations in Taiwan still focus only on the customers' or consumers' privacy, and most company policies and commitments have been solely focusing on this issue. Not many enterprises have made any commitment towards protecting their own employees' privacy. Therefore, this study seeks to find out how enterprises' privacy commitments are related to privacy concerns, organization identification, as well as the employees' organization based self esteem (OBSE) through the research of papers on privacy, privacy in the work-space, privacy concerns, organization identification, privacy protection policies and commitments, and organization based self esteem. This study uses a questionnaire, and after analyzing the responses collected, came up with the following: 1.A company's privacy commitment has positive influence on OBSE 2.A company's privacy commitment has positive influence on the privacy concerns of employees 3.Employees' privacy concerns have positive influence on OBSE 4.A company's privacy commitment has positive influence on the organization identification of employees 5.Employees' organization identification has positive influence on OBSE 6.A company's privacy commitment, through the Mediation effects of privacy concerns of the employees and organization identification, has significant influence on OBSE Finally, this study further analyses relevant studies and research data, and concludes by offering suggestions to enterprises on employee privacy protection, as well as directions for further research possibilities.
