Team Work Culture: Case Study Of Economics And Business Faculty Employees At Faletehan University

Yumhi Yumhi, Hadi Subhan


Teamwork culture is an organizational sub-culture that triggers an affective  culture when employees experience the process of forming a teamwork culture. The  affective culture of the organization, which shapes the way teamwork is experienced  and expressed, plays a very important part during the process of establishing a  teamwork culture which is another aspect of organizational life. This thesis contributes  to the literature by describing the relationship between teamwork culture, affective  culture and organizational culture using a qualitative study. This study found that when  informants' values were congruent with organizational values, they tended to react  more positively to change. Cultural changes trigger emotional reactions, often intense.  When teamwork culture is recognized and treated with respect, people become more  engaged with teamwork culture. Attitudes toward the existing affective culture also  produce a teamwork cultural response to cultural aspects.

Keywords: Teamwork culture, affective culture, organizational culture
