The bachelor's thesis presents a survey of organizational culture within an organization. The survey is based upon a case study of the Slovenian Research Agency. The creation of organizational culture is a long-term process involving both managers and employees. A well-developed organizational culture requires close cooperation between managers and employees, as only satisfied employeess can contribute to the creation of an effective and successful organization. Consequently, this is also reflected in satisfied external actors.
Since the development of organizational culture results from mutual cooperation between all employees, every employee is responsible for the progress of the organizational culture within their respective competences.
The bachelor’s thesis analyses the state of development of the organizational culture and identifies what kind of culture prevails in an organization in which I have been employed since its establishment, the Slovenian Research Agency.
The purpose of the study was to investigate the type of organizational culture in the mentioned organization and the role of leadership in the development and design of the organizational culture, based on the questionnaire and the interview with the director and his deputy. It was also intended to determine the satisfaction of employees with the existing type of the organisational culture, and to identify preferred type of the organisational culture for the future.
The processing of the results confirmed all three hypotheses and based on the analysis of the results the following was found: the dominant type of organizational culture in the agency is a hierarchy; employees for the future wish for a “klanska” type of organizational culture; the leadership gives great importance to the development of an organizational culture and the cooperation between employees and leadership is close and continuous, and employees are satisfied with the current organisational culture, nevertheless, changes towards [klanska] organisational culture would be welcomed for the future.
