TORMO CARBO, Guillermina y OSCA SEGOVIA, Amparo. Organizational and Individual Antecedents on Knowledge-Sharing Intention: Perceived Organizational Support, Climate and Organizational Commitment. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.3, pp.213-226. ISSN 1576-5962.
The main goal of this study is to investigate the influence of three organizational and individual antecedents on knowledge-sharing intention: perceived organizational support, psychological climate and organizational commitment. To analyze the direct and indirect relationships among variables, a structural equations model is proposed. The object of analysis is, specifically, the direct relationship between organizational support and psychological climate (task orientation and support for innovation) on knowledge-sharing intentions and the indirect relationship of these antecedents through employees' affective commitment. Results, based on a survey of 168 employees in the tile industry, show that task orientation has only a direct effect on knowledge-sharing intentions, whereas the two dimensions related to support (support for innovation and organizational support) have an indirect effect on knowledge-sharing intention because they increase employees' affective commitment. This article ends with a discussion on the results from a practical point of view.
