Abstract

The culture throughout the years has been to refer to a product of the interaction of society, to be a key success factor in organizations activity. The importance of this concept for an organization is the transmission of values and philosophies, socialization of its members, staff motivation, cohesion and commitment to important goals. The aim of this study is to analyze aspects of organizational culture building on the perception of teachers in Spanish schools. We performed a study on variables related to organizational culture drawing on the ICOE inventory, based on a sample of 52 schools and 2,771 teachers. The statistical analyses, the factor analysis and ANOVA are perfomed through SPSS 21. The results obtained indicate that teachers perceive their center's organizational culture quite positive and homogeneaous, feeling a good social environment, - communication, relationships and integration, work commitment, impartiality, equity and recognition. the existence of differences in scores by type of center and episodic knowledge of severe physical or verbal violence. By contrasts, they are less significant in terms of age and experience, the size of the center, gender and type of population. Learning a center's culture starting from participants' perceptions, gives us an approximate idea of what is ideologically shared about a center and, this analysis helps us to reflect on the strength or weakness of the existing culture in schools to address the challenges of education in today's society.
La cultura a lo largo de los años ha pasado de referirse a una actividad producto de la interacción de la sociedad, a ser un factor clave del éxito en las organizaciones. La importancia de este concepto para una organización es la transmisión de valores y filosofías, la socialización de sus miembros, la motivación del personal, la cohesión y el compromiso con metas relevantes. El objetivo de este estudio es analizar aspectos de la cultura organizacional desde la percepción docente en centros educativos españoles. Se ha realizado un estudio sobre variables relacionadas con la cultura organizacional a partir del inventario ICOE, realizado sobre una muestra de 52 centros y 2.771 profesores. Los análisis estadísticos, análisis factorial y ANOVAS, se han realizado a través del programa estadístico SPSS 21. Los resultados obtenidos nos indican que el profesorado percibe la cultura organizacional de sus centros de manera bastante positiva y homogénea, percibiendo un ambiente social bueno - comunicación, relaciones e integración-, compromiso de trabajo, trato justo, equidad y reconocimiento. Se señalan diferencias en las puntuaciones según el tipo de centro y el conocimiento episódicos de violencia física o verbal grave; siendo estas menos significativas en función de la edad y experiencia profesional, el tamaño del centro, sexo del profesorado y el tipo de población. Conocer la cultura de un centro a partir de las percepciones de los implicados, nos da una visión aproximada de lo que se comparte ideológicamente del centro, comprender esta cultura, también permite reflexionar sobre cuáles son las necesidades, así como las fortalezas de la cultura existente en los centros para hacer frente a los retos de la educación de la sociedad actual.
