ABSTRACT
Knowledge is treated as the main source of competitive advantage therefore; organizations of the modern era are trying to figure out the employees with customized knowledge and how to make best use of existing knowledge lying within the organization through knowledge sharing. This research was an attempt to understand the employees' attitude and intentions towards knowledge sharing and key factors affecting these constructs. A sample of 113 individuals drawn from the private sector of Pakistan showed that both extrinsic and intrinsic factors are important in developing attitude and intentions towards knowledge sharing, however intrinsic factors especially "enjoying in helping others" play a significant role towards knowledge sharing attitude and intentions. Implications are also discussed on the basis of findings of the study.
