Abstract

This paper investigates comparatively the extent to which Greek and Swiss newspaper firms have established a learning-oriented corporate culture and enacted human resource development policies facilitating lifelong both individual and organizational learning and advancement. The results suggest that although Swiss newspaper firms are closer to their transformation into learning organizations than Greek ones, both industries display organizational learning inhibiting deficiencies that need to be handled by newspaper managers.
