Knowledge Sharing and Organizational Culture Dimensions: Does Job Satisfaction Matter?


The aim of this study is to examine how job satisfaction influences the relationship between company performance, knowledge sharing, and organizational culture, perceived through the prism of Hofstede’s cultural dimensions, controlled by company size and staff position. A survey of 910 Polish employees (mainly knowledge workers) with different roles and experiences across different industries was conducted. The data were analyzed using structural equation modeling. The findings prove that job satisfaction is a strong mediator for company culture dimensions and knowledge sharing by the high skilled employee. The influence of masculinity, long-term perspective, and collectivism on knowledge sharing are fully mediated by job satisfaction. Uncertainty avoidance and power distance are partially mediated. The relationship between job satisfaction and company performance is complementarily mediated by knowledge sharing. For optimum company performance, it is important to create a company culture that, first, increases job satisfaction and, second, enhances knowledge sharing. Job satisfaction of knowledge workers in Poland is influenced by low power distance, teamwork, and long-term perspective, and clear rules, strength, and a dominant and assertive male style of management lead to knowledge sharing. The main value of this study is the complete picture it provides of the mediation function of job satisfaction for company culture and knowledge sharing and performance based on a multisector sample.
