ABSTRACT
The article presents a study which focused on forgiveness as an organizational culture with essential consequences among workers that can affect the long-term productivity and success of the group. The researchers identified three core values in organizations through which the culture of forgiveness can be expected to develop, namely relationality, temperance and dignity. They posit two overarching top-down mechanisms that consolidate the effects of each core value on the emergence of the forgiveness culture.
