Abstract
Knowledge is one of the indispensable elements for organizations to achieve their goals. One of the ways to increase the knowledge of the organization is to share the knowledge of the employees with their colleagues. In other words, knowledge sharing behavior is critical in increasing organizational knowledge. For this reason, it is important to investigate the factors behind the knowledge sharing behavior of the employees. The aim of this study is to test the effect of organizational identification on knowledge sharing behavior and the mediating role of altruism in this effect. The research was carried out on academic and administrative staff working at Düzce University. The data set consisting of 345 questionnaires was analyzed with the least squares regression technique using the PROCESS plugin. According to the research findings, altruism shows “partial mediation” effect in the relationship between organizational identification and knowledge sharing behavior. At the end of the study, some suggestions for researchers and practice were also presented.
