Knowledge Management: Link with employee commitment

It is widely believed that the success of KM initiatives is ultimately predicated on having employees who are willing and prepared to share their knowledge. This is why, in my opinion, I feel it is very important to identify the factors that affect the willingness or reluctance of employees to share their insights.

After reflecting on this issue for a while, I believe one of the major factors is the level of commitment that employees feel towards their organization. If they are highly commited to their jobs, they will be more likely to share their knowledge with others. In contrast, if they are not commited, they will not have any motivation to share their expertise. Hence, it is very important for companies to increase the overall employee satisfaction and commitment. They must ensure that they have a strong psychological contract with their workers. Although, this does not give a definitive answer as to why some employees choose to share their knowledge and others don't, this information can help me in the future to appreciate the knowledge-sharing attitudes and behaviours of people.
