Organizational culture performs four important roles and can be authoritative or participative. There is evidence in the literature that a participative organizational culture encourages teamwork, promotes organizational citizenship behavior and leads to high organizational performance, which is often represented by productivity and profitability. Organizational cultures focus at supporting organizational vision and mission in furtherance of performance. A corporate culture markets the organization, and it is believed that organizational culture is one of the most important things that must be institutionalized to promote organizational sustainability and performance. The exploratory research design was used to examine the relationship between organizational culture and performance; and it was found that organizational culture has positive association with performance. Among other things, it was recommended that organizations need to make their corporate culture as visible as possible so as to add value to its goodwill.
