Summary/Abstract: The article presents the results of research on the impact of corporate culture on the quality of human capital. The basis of the theoretical empirical research is a model of “4K” assuming that the quality of human capital in an organization is determined by the employees’ competences (knowledge; skills and attitudes); but also interpersonal contacts; organisational climate; and above all; organizational culture; which is an informal system of thought patterns and codes of conduct in the organisation. On this basis; an analysis of organizational culture of 20 companies has been conducted in four key areas: organizational values and principles; vision and objectives for action; flexibility and pro-activeness and orientation on development. Studies have shown significant correlations between elements of the organizational culture and the size of the company. Statistical analysis revealed strong correlations of some areas of organizational culture (especially the openness of the company to external environment and fast response to market demands) with indicators of economic value added in the given enterprise.
