Summary/Abstract: Organizational culture is the total of symbols and mythologies that convey the principal values of an organization to its employees. The culture of organizations develops over time, allowing the employees to interact with the opportunities and threats of the environment. To effectively maintain the organizational activities, organizations should be aware of the organizational culture they have. Organizational commitment has a determinant part in the success of corporations. Employees with high job satisfaction adopt the corporation of which they are a part,associate their goals and objectives with those of the corporation, and consider the success of the company as theirs. The main reason of this is that the the concept of productivity is directly connected with effort (human). Technological advancements and new production techniques cannot be considered independently from the element of effort. As long as the organizations don’t receive enough efficiency from their employees, other production elements will be meaningless.
