Abstract

Purpose

This paper aims to talk about the importance of building and sustaining an organizational culture that supports knowledge sharing between all members of the organization.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper provides four tips for managers who want to build such a culture within their company, as well as two further tips on how to sustain one that is already built.

Findings

Building and sustaining a knowledge-sharing culture in a business organization may take a lot of time and effort on the part of management and employees alike, but it is definitely worth it, as companies can experience low employee-turnover rates and increased profits based on it.

Originality/value

This viewpoint is based on the author’s personal experience within various organizations.
