dc.description.abstract The aim of the study was to test the theoretically developed model and, secondly, to determine whether there is a relationship between organisational culture and occupational health (somatic symptoms, anxiety and insomnia). A quantitative methodology was adopted by means of a survey, which targeted a population of 462 staff members in an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) organisation. The General Health Questionnaire and the South African Culture Instrument were used for this purpose. Structural equation modelling (SEM) was used to determine possible relationships between the constructs, and regression analysis was conducted to determine the predictability of dimensions. The indices indicated that the developed model could be accepted, and this confirmed that health can have an impact on organisational culture or vice versa. The multiple regression analysis results showed that organisational strategy and task systems, as dimensions of organisational culture, predict occupational health most accurately. en
