S. A. Mufeed, Qurrat.A Hamdani, S. A Mufeed


Culture is a basic attribute of society, a familiar concept, yet difficult to define. It is the subject of prodigious research and millions of words by insightful and expressive people. Cultures exist at multiple levels in a society. They can be regional, national, societal, ethnic, organizational, or group. The researches reveal that the organizational culture has an impact on the behaviour, performance, knowledge management of the employees. Culture effects feedback strategy, organizational effectiveness, learned helplessness, total productive maintenance and organization dynamism of the employees. Learning organizations excel when the culture is conducive. Research reveals a limited study on the hospital sector. The research on hospitals, in the area of Human Resource Development system and practices so far has been on a very micro level. No research so far has been conducted exclusively on General Climate, OCTAPACE Culture and HRD Mechanisms with special reference to hospitals, within and outside the state of J&K on comparative basis. In view of the present study was undertaken in hospital sector in J&K, with SKIMS and SMHS to know need and relevance to OCTAPACE Culture in health sector.

Keywords: HRD Climate, Culture, Openness, Confrontation Trust, Pro-activity, Autonomy, Authenticity, Collaboration and Experimentation.
