What is it about?
This study examined which dimensions of organizational culture have positive impacts on knowledge sharing. A quantitative research with opinion-based questionnaires was applied. The findings indicated that four dimensions of company culture are significant: partnership between the employer and the staff, cooperation among employees, user-friendliness of the used information system, and employees’ organizational commitment. All of them were moderate-significantly related to employee knowledge sharing. However, only partnership between the employer and the staff also predicted knowledge sharing in the organization.
Why is it important?
Intra-organizational knowledge sharing has a significant influence on performance of organizations. Some researchers point out that knowledge sharing can be facilitated by organisational culture. The results indicate that in the process of building knowledge sharing culture, partnership with the staff including support for employees from management, fairness and communication is essential.
