Clever Omovigho Igberaharha


The study determined the degree of influence organizational culture has on employee’s behaviour among small and medium scale enterprises. Two research questions were raised and two null hypotheses were formulated for the study at 0.05 level of significance. The researcher adopted a correlation research design for the study and the population of the study consisted of 2,020 respondents, made up of one employee each in the 2,020 Small and Medium Scale Enterprises operating in Delta State, and registered with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. While the sample size is 1,010 respondents, which is 50% of the population using the systematic random sampling technique. A 5-point likert scale questionnaire which consisted of 15 items tagged “Organizational Culture on Employees Behaviour and Productivity Questionnaire (OCEBPQ)” was used to collect data for the study. Mean was employed in answering the research questions, while the Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient was used to test the null hypotheses. It was found out that there is a significant relationship between the organizational culture and employee’s behaviour/ productivity among small and medium scale enterprises in Delta State. Therefore, it was recommended that Owners of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises should accept the responsibility of not only sharing the values and behaviours suggested by the organizational culture but also embodying these same values and behaviours since it is folly to expect employees' adherence to values and behaviours that are ignored by them.
