This study developed a path model to examine the impact of the perceived organisational support and leader-member exchange on organisational culture within asset management organisations in Australia. Additionally, a path from organisational culture to employee engagement was also examined. Survey responses from 90 technical employees within asset management organisations were analysed using partial least squares modelling. The results provide support that perceived organisational support and leader-member exchange were positively and significantly related to organisational culture and that organisational culture was positively and significantly related to employee engagement. As a result, the findings from this study provide important information for management seeking to improve employee performance through the development of a supportive organisational culture and employee engagement.
