Abstract


We investigate how rewards can foster knowledge sharing
practices in the education sector. This study also aims to determine
whether psychological commitment mediates in the relationship
between rewards and KS practices. To get the objectives of this study,
data have been collected from 363 employees of private universities.
The results exhibit a strong positive relationship of intrinsic, extrinsic
rewards and psychological commitment with KS practices. The
intrinsic reward has been proved a stronger predictor of KS practices.
Moreover, the current study exhibited that intrinsic rewards are of
prior importance to people than extrinsic rewards. The results
suggested that in order to foster KS culture in organizations, it is
necessary for strategic managers to devise such environment and
polices where employees are given commitment and rewards of
intrinsic nature so that they are motivated to get involved in KS
practices and can provide competitive edge to the organization.
