Abstract:In this Bachelor thesis is a research model developed, that tries to measure the influences of organizational strategy, organizational climate, the strength of the HR climate and affective commitment on the strategic work behaviors of employees. Although a lot of research has already been done on this topic, is the composition of the variables in this research new and unique in literature until now. A questionnaire analysis which is accomplished in two German organizations is the medium of this research. With help of statistical analyses on the 93 returned questionnaires, it is tried to get an answer on the research question: “Which effects have the fit between organizational strategy and organizational climate, the moderating variable strength of the HR climate and the mediating variable affective commitment on the strategic behaviors of employees?” In comparison of the two firms which participated in the research, it is found that firm A has the better fit between organizational strategy and organizational climate, though firm B scores higher on the strategic work behaviors. Thus, on the base of these findings it is not proven that the better the fit between organizational strategy and organizational climate, the better the strategic work behaviors of employees. Furthermore, it is found that firm A scores significant higher on affective commitment than firm B. This is a possible demonstration that a good fit between organizational strategy and organizational climate has a positive influence on affective commitment. Moreover, calculations show a significant stronger HR climate in firm A than in firm B. Due to this result it is assumable that a strong HR climate does not influence the strategic work behaviors in a positive way.
