The primary objective of this study is to investigate the impact of organisational culture on employee productivity in Namport. The study was primarily anchored on the Denison Model. The hypothesised relationship between organisational culture and employee productivity was tested by adopting an explanatory survey design that employed a quantitative research method. Simple random sampling procedure was used to select a sample of 168 respondents from a target population that consisted of white-collar NamPort employees with access to work computers. The study collected primary data through an online survey that utilised a questionnaire with structured questions. Specifically, descriptive and inferential statistics analysed the quantitative data through SPSS. Following data analysis, the study revealed that organisational culture has a significant impact on employee productivity in NamPort. Furthermore, the results indicated a positive correlation between organisational culture dimensions and employee productivity. Moreover, the findings revealed that the consistency dimension exerts the strongest positive and significant influence on the dependent variable, as evidenced by the R-value of 0.978 for the regression coefficient. Based on the research conclusions, the study recommends that NamPort’s executive team recognises the critical role of organisational culture in the organisation’s growth and success. In addition, recommendations were also made to broaden the scope of the research to other segments of the maritime industry, to strengthen the findings.
