Nowadays every business needs people who are innovators and project drivers. This research attempts to answer “What is the effect of organizational climate on employee performance mediating by intrapreneurial behaviours in the higher education sector in Egypt?”. The research proposed a framework based on an exhaustive literature review to identify the variables for successful implementation. The data were collected using a questionnaire was designed based on the literature review and distributed to 426 respondents. A Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) was adopted to examine the causal relationships. The findings of this research reveal that organizational climate has a positive influence on employee performance. As well, the organizational climate has a positive influence on intrapreneurial behaviours. And the direct effect between intrapreneurial behaviours and employee performance is statistically significant. However, the results of the mediation effect indicate that there is a partial mediation effect of the intrapreneurial behaviours between organizational climate and employee performance. This study can be considered as a first study in the MENA countries especially Egypt that is concerned with such a topic, so it is important to mention that this work may provide useful information and practical guidance for successful implementation in the higher education sector. It may also be considered a reference value for the other sectors in order to develop the economic environment that meets the policies adopted by the government and what is stated in Egypt’s vision strategy 2030.
