Organizational Climate

Organizational climate is a relatively ending quality of the internal environment that is experienced by the members, influences their behavior and can described in terms of values of a particular set of characteristics of the organization (Renato Tagiuri, 1968).

Organizational climate is the set of characteristics that describe an organization and that (a) distinguish one organization from other organizations; (b) are relatively enduring over time and (c) influence the behavior of the people in the organization (Forehand & Gilmer, 1964).

Compare these two definitions of “Organizational Climate” with a definition of “Organizational Culture” as given by Stephen P. Robbins (1986): Organizational Culture is a relatively uniform perception held of the organization, it has common characteristics, it is descriptive, it can distinguish one organization from another and it integrates individual, group and organization system variables.
