The current study examined the relationships between shared climate perceptions and needs, work values, interaction groups, and department membership. The sample consisted of members of the clerical staff and management in a relatively small organization. Cluster analysis was used to identify collective climates, needs clusters, and work values clusters, whereas interaction groups were detected using network analysis. Needs and work values clusters, interaction groups, and department membership were used to predict collective climate membership. The results indicated that needs and interaction groups predicted shared climate perceptions, with mixed evidence concerning the relationship between department membership and psychological climate. Finally, there was no relationship between work values and climate perceptions. The study's limitations and suggestions for future research are discussed.
