This research aimed at studying the relationship between teachers' perceived organizational culture of school and their basic psychological needs satisfaction (relatedness, competence, and autonomy) in Urmia , Iran, based on Hofstede’s cultural dimensions (masculinity/ femininity, individualism/ collectivism, uncertainty avoidance and power distance). To this end, 187 high school teachers were randomly selected and were asked to answer Hofstede cultural dimension and basic psychological needs scale. The results of canonical correlation analysis revealed that there is a significantly negative relationship between Hofstede cultural dimensions and the satisfaction of basic psychological needs. In general, it can be concluded that if the organizational culture of the school does not support teachers' autonomy, the sense of competence will be low among these teachers
Basic psychological needs, Hofstede cultural dimensions, organizational culture, self-determination
  • culture is the controller, the satisfaction rate of these needs will be decreased. According to the
  • results of this study, one might think of the question that how can the culture of an organization
  • oppose the individual’s innate needs while it provides the best tool for humans’ compatibility with
  • the environment (Schein, 2010). It seems that the answer of this question lies on the contradiction
  • between individual’s own cultural values and the organizational culture of his workplace which is
  • not clean- cut yet and it is suggested to conduct more research on the facilitating role of
  • individual’s cultural values in the relationship between organizational culture and the satisfaction
  • of psychological needs.
  • At the end, it should be mentioned that the sample of this study only included school teachers in
  • one city. Therefore, generalization of the findings to employees of other organizations faces some
  • limitations. Considering this limitation, more research is needed to be conducted in other
  • organizations to increase the generalizability of the results.
