dc.description.abstract This paper focuses on the role of the knowledge worker and their contribution to the achievement of an enterprise's objectives. Knowledge workers do not have enough time to keep abreast of new knowledge and need more than motivation to assist with the capturing of tacit knowledge. The purpose of the empirical survey was to determine the role and contribution of knowledge workers to the objectives of a South African technology-oriented company. A high percentage of respondents indicated a positive relationship .between a worker's position on the organisational hierarchy and the opportunities for the worker to make knowledge contributions. Tile metrics applied to measuring the contribution of knowledge workers need to be carefully considered. en_US
