This study aims to investigate the influence of the work environment (WE) on innovative work behavior (IWB) in state higher education institutions while considering the mediating roles of organizational learning (OL) and employee engagement (EE). Academic and non-academic staff data were collected through a quantitative survey methodology and analysed using PLS-SEM. Results indicate that the WE significantly enhances OL and EE, with β values of 0.583 and 0.471, respectively. Additionally, OL and EE mediate the relationship between the WE and IWB with β values of 0.296 and 0.111, respectively, explaining 39.6% of its variance. The study suggests introducing novel mediators to understand this relationship more comprehensively within higher education institutions.


Keywords –Innovative work behavior, work environment, organizational learning, employee engagement.
