Abstract (English):
This paper reviews foreign methods for assessing an organizational climate, i.e. a complex of organizational, managerial, economic, socio-psychological, and other conditions. Organizational climate affects staff creativity and organizational innovation. The authors propose methods and tools for assessing the creative and innovative climate of Russian organizations. The methods can become an important element of systemic and regular monitoring of the organizational climate and its improvement. The survey of respondents (employees) was performed on the Google Forms platform; data processing and presentation of the results were performed with the help of Google Tables tools. The proposed methodology makes it possible to check the reliability and accuracy of the results. It offers a set of rules for automatic conclusions about the state of organizational climate based on the data obtained from interviewing the staff. The proposed methods and instruments may be put into practice of organizations in order to obtain reliable estimates of their organizational climate.
