Abstract: The world of work is characterized by uncertainty, dynamism and rapid changes. To deal with that, a culture oriented towards learning is crucial. Nowadays learning in organizations is recognized as an essential strategy for achieving success. The aim of this study is to analyse the relationships of learning culture with contextual performance and the decrease of negative emotions concerning the work. In addition, it is also our aim to analyse the mediating role, not only of Person-Organization Fit, but also of job satisfaction in these relationships. As the main research strategy, we have chosen the survey based on a questionnaire with a data sample of 358 employees from nine Portuguese private companies. We used Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) for data analysis. The results suggest that both direct effects between learning culture and negative emotions and contextual performance are statistically significant. Furthermore, the mediation by job satisfaction in relationships between learning culture and contextual performance and the mediation by P-O Fit in the relationship between learning culture and negative emotions was not supported. The other hypotheses of mediation found empirical support.
