This study presents an integrated relational framework for investigating and comprehending organizational climate using the interactive dimensions of Quinn and Rohrbaugh's Competing Values Model (CVM). With a survey of 1,053,118 workers from 156 Brazilian companies and the application of a psychological networks technique, this research identified five distinct clusters from the vicinity of the most central nodes, offering further insights into the interactions between different CVM domains. Using the clusters within the four CVM quadrants, a Relational Framework for Organizational Climate was developed, providing an integrated approach that displays the most relevant item connections from various dimensions, aiding in the understanding of organizational climate. Among the various findings, this study emphasizes the centrality of enabling workers to participate in decision-making processes as the inter- and intra-organizational aspect most critical to the understanding and improvement of organizational climate. This study also considers additional issues in the context of the contributions of utilizing psychological networks for researching organizational climate, providing insights for further development.
