This research analyzes the effect of compensation strategies (fees and wage) has on the dimensions of organizational commitment in teachers from Higher Education Institutions (HEI’s), the study is descriptive with an analysis of variance with one factor (Anova), made to 209 teachers in the Metropolitan Area Laja Bajio in Guanajuato, Mexico, using variables (affective, normative and continuous commitment), of the instrument proposed by Meyer and Allen (1997). The results show that the compensation strategy through wage increases affective commitment, while reducing continuous commitment. Compared with compensation strategy through fees, waged teachers have a greater sense of attachment and commitment to do their job and less sense of "having to" stay in the institution only by the need of a job.
