Abstract

The research study examines the relationship between Organizational Culture and perception of incentives. The analysis is based on survey data collected from College of Business Administration students at UNO. The survey has three main parts: 1) identification of the current dominant organizational culture 2) identification preferred organizational culture 3) perception of the most common incentives. The identification of the current organizational culture is made by using the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI), developed by Kim Cameron and Robert Quinn. OCAI identifies the degree, to which an organizational culture falls under a certain type (e.g. Clan 20%, Adhocracy 30%, Market 5%, and Hierarchy 45%). The assessment of the preferred organizational culture was performed using the same research method. The collected data was broken down into four previously mentioned categories, the classification criteria being the current dominant cultural type. Subsequently, for a robust test of the hypotheses, both parametric and nonparametric inferential methods have been used. One of the findings suggested by the results, is that for employees working in an organization characterized as having a market culture, career advancement opportunities are more important and motivating than for employees working in organizations with other types of culture. More results of the research to be presented at the Student Research and Creative Activity Fair.
