Human resource development (HRD) practices are intertwined with organisational creative climate (CC), which has received an increasing attention in the HRD literature. From a HRD perspective, understanding the factors that influence CC is important since CC influences not only employees’ possibilities to share and develop ideas, but also potentially employees’ decision to leave their current organisation. This study focuses on how perceptions of CC is related to tenure in organisations by analysing perceived CC in a random sample of unionised Swedish white-collar workers (n=1303). It finds tenure to be negatively related to perceived CC for the first few years of employment. The level of knowledge required for a position does not moderate this relationship, but more knowledge-intensive work in itself tends to be associated with higher levels of perceived CC. Implications for HRD are discussed.

Nyckelord: tenure, creative climate, creativity, socialisation, white-collar workers, union membership
