This study focuses on how organization-based self-esteem (OBSE) moderates the relationship between employees’ social network and knowledge-sharing behavior. Data were gathered by using questionnaire answers from employees working in various business organizations. High OBSE samples and low OBSE samples were selected, and the relationship between employees’ social network in the work place and their knowledge-sharing behavior was analyzed. The results show that 1) a network with peers has a positive effect on knowledge-sharing behavior among low OBSE employees, and that 2) a network with leaders has a negative effect on knowledge sharing among low OBSE employees.
