Abstract

Many companies have tried, with mixed success, to leverage knowledge resources by knowledge sharing functions. Trust is one of the integral factors for fostering knowledge sharing. This paper categorizes trust on the basis of its multi-dimension and multi-level. In view of this category, it investigates the relationship between trust and knowledge sharing. A sample of 191 employees from 24 companies is used for an empirical exploration. Our analysis results imply that both organizational trust and trust among peers are crucial for effective knowledge sharing.
