Organizational climate and culture
The Handbook is designed to frame the organizational climate and culture constructs in their full breadth of potential causes, correlates, and consequences from both academic and practice vantage points. In addition, links between climate and culture and organizational effectiveness are explored. The conceptual and methodological underpinnings of climate and culture thinking and research are also documented. The Handbook concludes with a chapter summarizing the 10 central themes it contains. Keywords: conceptual and methodological issues , correlates and outcomes , historical review , macro processes , mirco processes , organizational climate , organizational culture , organizational effectiveness , practical implementation. Organizational climate and organizational culture are two conceptually distinct yet recently overlapping constructs for understanding the ways employees experience their total work settings. They represent the sense employees make out of their organizations; they represent the essential meaning employees attach to what their work places are in their essence and, in some cases, their essences.
This study investigated the retention rates of college graduates hired in six public accounting firms over a six-year period. Organizational culture values varied significantly among the firms. The variation in cultural values had a significant effect on the rates at which the newly hired employees voluntarily terminated employment. The relationship between the employees' job performance and their retention also varied significantly with organizational culture values. The cultural effects were stronger than the combined exogenous influences of the labor market and the new employees' demographic characteristics.
We review the literature on organizational climate and culture paying specific attention to articles published in the Journal of Applied Psychology JAP since its first volume in The article traces the history of the 2 constructs though JAP has been far more important for climate than culture research. We distinguish 4 main periods: the pre era, with pioneering work on exploring conceptualization and operationalizations of the climate construct; the era, with foundational work on aggregation issues, outcome-focused climates on safety and service and early writings on culture; the era, characterized by solidification of a focused climate approach to understanding organizational processes justice, discrimination and outcomes safety, service and the beginnings of survey approaches to culture; and the era, characterized by multilevel work on climate, climate strength, demonstrated validity for a climate approach to outcomes and processes, and the relationship between leadership and climate and culture. We summarize and comment on the major theory and research achievements in each period, showing trends observed in the literature and how JAP has contributed greatly to moving research on these constructs, especially climate, forward. We also recommend directions for future research given the current state of knowledge.

The definition developed by Lawrence R. James and his colleagues makes a distinction between psychological and organizational climate. Employees' collective appraisal of the organizational work environment takes into account many dimensions of the situation as well as the psychological impact of the environment. For instance, job-specific properties such as role clarity, workload and other aspects unique to a person's specific job have a psychological impact that can be agreed upon by members of the organization.
