Abstract:There is a growing amount of literature available which addresses the relation between organizational climate, organizational strategy, HR climate and performance, but no literature can be found which takes all these variables into account. This study aims to investigate the effects of a possible fit between organizational climate and organizational strategy on strategic work behaviours, including a mediating effect of affective commitment and a moderating effect of the strength of HR climate within one single model. This empirical survey study uses the data of two technically oriented organizations, both located in West Germany, gained by means of questionnaires. The results demonstrate a significant, positive correlation between affective commitment and strategic work behaviours. In addition, a significant, positive correlation is found among the strategic work behaviours themselves. However, the expected fit between certain types of organizational climate and strategies, based on the theoretical framework, could not be demonstrated. The same is true for the mediating effect of affective commitment and the moderating effect of the strength of HR climate on the relation between the possible fit and strategic work behaviours
