Abstract: Scant attention has been directed toward exploring the entrepreneurial innovation behaviour of employees who are not managers. A two-level structural equation model of white-collar workers (n=153) shows that the organisations competitive strategies determine the organisations desire for employee innovation behaviour. The organisations desire for employee innovation behaviour together with an employee's proactivity determines the employee's innovation behaviour.
Keywords: business growth; corporate entrepreneurship; innovation behaviour; intrapreneurship; organisational desire for innovation; organisational strategy; proactivity; worker participation; white-collar workers; employee innovation.
