Examining Relationships between Individual, Organizational Factor and Knowledge Sharing Behaviour

Ain Zuraini Zin Aris

Abstract


This study examines the direct relationship between sense of self-worth, attitudes, perceived organizational incentives and management support and knowledge sharing behaviour. It also examines the moderating effect of interpersonal trust on the relationship between sense of self worth, attitudes, perceived organizational incentives and management support and knowledge sharing behaviour. A total of 148 questionnaires were distributed on site to participants who had agreed to participate in this study. Hypotheses for direct effect were tested using multiple regression analyses and hypotheses for interacting effect were tested using hierarchical multiple regression. Results showed that only sense of self-worth and attitudes were significantly positively associated with knowledge sharing behaviour. Furthermore, results from hierarchical multiple regressions showed that interpersonal trust did not moderate the relationship between sense of self-worth and knowledge sharing behaviour, between attitude and knowledge sharing behaviour, between perceived organizational incentives and knowledge sharing behaviour and between management support and knowledge sharing behaviour. Implications of the findings, potential limitations and directions for future research are discussed.
