Abstract [en]

The Problem Disagreement between subordinates and their managers’ perceptions of organizational climate and support has been related to less efficient work performance and worse organizational outcomes. Possible consequences of disagreement between managers’ and subordinates’ ratings of organizational learning are currently not known. Little is also known about how the level of agreement between the two ratings relates to employees’ performance and well-being at work.

The Solution The study was conducted in an industrial company in Sweden. First-line managers’ and their subordinates’ responses to the Dimensions of the Learning Organization Questionnaire (DLOQ) were evaluated along with employees’ ratings of their work performance and health.

The Stakeholders Key stakeholders include leaders responsible for group- and organization-level learning activitities and employees’ well-being and work performance. In addition, representatives from human development departments will find this study to be of interest.
