The purpose of this study is to examine the factors of performance - based HR system that Korean ICT firms use and to analyze the effect of performance - based HR system on organizational culture. To do this, we conducted literature surveys and set up research models and hypotheses that performance - based personnel systems will affect organizational culture. We also added the moderating effect of LMX on the relationship between these variables. For the empirical analysis, a questionnaire survey was conducted for ICT companies member in Daegu and Kyungbuk area. Multiple regression analysis and hierarchical regression analysis were conducted to test hypotheses. As a result, performance - based personnel system has a significant effect on organizational culture. In particular, we found that LMX has a moderating effect on hierarchical culture and collective culture. These results will contribute to enhance competitiveness and to create new core competencies of ICT firms.
