Organizational learning and individual values: The case of israeli civil service employees

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study examines the relationship between individual values and organizational learning among employees of an Israeli government ministry. The authors examined the predictive relationships between 10 individual values and organizational learning, focusing on four dimensions of organizational learning. The study sample consisted of 298 civil service employees working in one Israeli ministry. The findings showed that three values that reflect a focus on person-organization fit-namely, security, tradition, and universalism-were positively and consistently related to all dimensions of organizational learning. Other values representing a focus on the individual-power and self-direction-were negatively related to organizational learning.
