Globalization, increased political uncertainty and unforeseen
economic instability, have forced corporations to reinvent themselves.
They need to develop an agile workforce to handle and adapt to
unforeseen changes, and organizational culture is an important
element for the success of a company. Yet, organizational culture has
not been fully explored with work-related curiosity and workforce
agility. The aim is to determine whether organizational culture
promotes work-related curiosity and, consequently, workforce agility.
This study found that there is no direct relationship between
organizational culture and workforce agility, and that organization
culture does not act as a mediator in the relationship between work-
related curiosity and workforce agility. It was also found that
organization culture does not have a straight relationship with work-
related curiosity, but it is a strong predictor of it. Using mixed methods
design combining a correlational and a between groups designs, with
data collected from 62 participants based in Brazil and Ireland, all the
hypotheses were tested. The findings add value to the existing
literature on the three constructs, helping companies find a way to
improve the performance of the workforce.
