Abstract

Purpose

This paper analyses the relationship between subjective well-being (SWB) and perceived organisational culture (POC) with the individual propensity to innovation (IPI).

Design/methodology/approach

To empirically test the hypotheses, the sample and data were collected through a cross-sectional survey with 614 professionals who work in Technological Knowledge-Intensive Business Service (T-Kibs) in Brazil. For data analysis, the authors applied the partial least squares path modelling (PLS-PM) algorithm.

Findings

The results identify that employees' perception of the organisational culture has a direct and indirect impact on the IPI. The perception of employees about the dimensions of clan and adhocracy of organisational culture influences the SWB of employees, which has a significant relationship with the individual propensity to innovation. Also, the perception of a market culture has a direct impact on the individual propensity to innovate. The results showed that the adhocracy culture has a more significant influence on the SWB of the female gender.

Originality/value

This work contributes to the expansion of scientific studies in the area of innovation, in addition to managerial contributions due to the identification of the factors that influence the IPI.
