Abstract: Employees are reluctant to share knowledge for many reasons. Paper explores knowledge sharing and hoarding processes in organization through social exchange theory. Since it is lack of conceptual framework which would explain knowledge sharing process in coherent manner connecting micro level in organization e.i. individuals with macro level, which is organizational level e.i. human resource practices and policy, we proposed social exchange theory as a proper framework for this assignment.
