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.


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.


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.


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