Abstract
The organizations of the 21st century more and more often see their human resources as the most valuable asset they hold. This is why they create wide range of opportunities to develop and self-improve for their employees. Such approach is aimed at increasing involvement, higher effectiveness, innovativeness and thus constant improvement of competitiveness. However this is not possible without employee constant learning and their selfactualization. In this way the learning process is stressed as essential element of every modern company. As a result of this thinking one of the key tasks for a company is to create proper environment which would generate and feasible knowledge. This is where organizational culture might prove very useful. The main objective of the article is to demonstrate the influence of organizational culture on molding learning organizations. The content has been drawn up based upon literature study as well as in-depth interview conducted with the computer programmer working for Google, Ireland. The study is a consequence of authors' interests in the fields of organizational culture as well as learning organization. (original abstract)
