Abstract

Employee silence behaviour is a major impediment in organisations' attempt to leverage on the stock of knowledge in its diverse workforce. In order to contribute to the nnderstanding ofthis concept, Dirnitras and Vakola tested a silence behaviour model in which silence climate was fmmd to affect the enactment of employees silence behaviour. The model tested in this study improved on this by accmmt:ing for the moderating role of selfesteem and locus of control and also indicating silence behaviour as both antecedent and outcome of work attitudes. Results obtained justify the reconunended expansion. Reconunendations are to always accmmt for individual differences in silence behaviour model and apply system management in the application of the model.
