I am really proud to announce that we received a prestigious Best Conference Proceedings Award for the Academy of Management Meeting, 2012, Boston (MA, USA). Reviewers have ranked the paper Černe, M., Nerstad, C., Škerlavaj, M. “Don’t come around here no more: Knowledge hiding, perceived motivational climate, and creativity” to be amongst the best in the OB Division. We provocatively suggest and prove that knowledge hiding not only damages organizations, but also individuals who hide knowledge themselves. In addition, we offer a remedy for that. The negative effect of knowledge hiding on creativity can be mitigated with fostering appropriate organizational climate.
