The issue of control is central to many conceptualizations of work and work organization. Although the body of research on organizational culture control is growing, this literature has a number of limitations. This article encourages theory building by supplying generalizable empirical evidence of the practices of organizations that aim to enhance management-espoused cultural control as well as developing insights into how such efforts impact on employees. The analysis of the responses to a survey of one thousand firms finds a number of significant associations between the three antecedent factors and cultural control as well as three associations with consequences. The article culminates with a discussion of the contributions and implications of these findings.
