Wasimul Rehman, Labiba Sheikh, Faryal Jalil, Kiran Razzaq.


In view of theoretical propositions of knowledge-based view (KBV) and social exchange theory (SET), this study tends toexamine the role of incentives to influence the knowledge sharing (KS) practices amidelementary school teachers through the mechanism of organizational commitment (OC).For that purpose,an amended instrument (questionnaire) was adopted to collect the data from the knowledge workers(elementary school teachers) working in governmentschools. The results support the argument that incentives positively influence the both tacit and explicit KS practices amid elementary school teachersin the presence of potential mediator OC. Nevertheless,the findings of study also provide the fruitful implications for education foundations working in country such as national education foundation (NEF), Punjab education foundation (PEF) and elementary and secondary education foundation (KPESEF) to comprehend that provision of effective incentives and rewards structures influence OC toward their organization which in turnsencourage the KS practices amid elementary school teachers.

Key words: Incentives, Knowledge Sharing practices, Organizational commitment, Elementary education system.
