Abstract

This quantitative study is aimed to study the relationship between the factors of trust, knowledge sharing attitude and reward on knowledge sharing in the public sector. Respondents of this study comprised of 210 respondents from nine district and land offices in Selangor. T-test analysis was used to determine the difference in knowledge sharing between male and female respondents. In addition, ANOVA analysis was done to examine the difference in the level of knowledge sharing based on the length of service and education level. Correlation and regression analysis were used to determine the relationship between the independent variables, namely trust, knowledge sharing attitude and reward and the dependent variable which is knowledge sharing. The result of the t-test and ANOVA analysis have shown that there is no significant difference in knowledge sharing between male and female, length of service as well as education levels. The result from the correlation analysis shows that all of the independent variables which are trust, knowledge sharing attitude and reward were positively correlated to knowledge sharing. The regression analysis shows that only 36.5% of knowledge sharing has been significantly explained by the three independent variables. However, the variable of trust does not have any significant influence on knowledge sharing. Furthermore, knowledge sharing attitude is the most influencing factor which affects knowledge sharing among staffs at district and land in Selangor. In this study, the findings were further discussed, and recommendations for the organization and future researcher were addressed.
