Abstract

The capability to innovate is essential to the survival of most organizations. Several factors that affect innovative work behaviors have been discussed and explored by scholars. It is generally believed that innovative work behaviors are influenced by leadership. However; few studies have evaluated the climate for innovation in the Malaysian Research and Development (R&D) setting. The previous findings on links between organizational climate and innovative work behaviors are reported to be inconsistent with one another. Meanwhile, there are also critiques of the measurement of organizational climate and innovative work behaviors are believed to be biased towards the Western culture. Hence, this study is timely to fill the existing research gap. 97 scientists were involved as respondents, comprising research officers, assistant research officers and research assistants who were working in seven public agencies in the agriculture sector. The findings reported that there is a significant relationship between organizational climate and innovative work behaviors. This research has theoretical and practical implications. From the theoretical perspective, present research contributes a momentous proven theory to the existing body of knowledge in the field of predicting innovative work behaviors.
