Abstract: Organizational silence is defined as the lack of effective interactions among staff and it stands opposite to the concept of organizational voice. Employees are regarded as sources of change, creativity, learning and innovation which are strategic factors to achieve organizational goals, but many of them choose to be silent and not to convey their valuable opinions and concerns about the problems in their organizations. This study aims to survey the factors that create this phenomenon. So with an overview on the literature about the subject has tried to achieve that why employees are silent. If tongues are not moving, no knowledge will be generated for organization. Tongue is a tool of human interactions in organizations. If human inspires the organization and is seen as its strategic capital, it is due to the fact that they are the employees who address organizational problems and provide solution for them. When silence is prevalent in an organization, depression penetrates in physical and social networks of the organization and competitive advantage will be meaningless for such organization.
