Humans by nature don’t like politics, and when it comes to office politics, most of us stay away from it at any cost. However, despite of being averse to it, one is affected because companies by nature are political organizations. It is an unavoidable game that one has to play and if you don’t know how to play, the need is to learn it. The current study has been undertaken to understand why it is important to learn office politics. We try to differentiate between an employee who doesn’t want to play it dirty and the one who adopts himself quickly to the work culture, and how their work life is affected and how satisfied are they. The study takes its inputs from various articles, research papers, books, company reports and opinions of renowned management scholars to know what bearing does office politics have on an organizational culture and why should an employee be concerned about it. We also refer to the expert opinions to get insights and practical advice to deal with the political culture in any organization. In holistic manner this study helps an employee to make an impact in an organization and affect those around.
