The starting point of organizational innovation is employees' creative thinking and innovation behaviors at work. In addition to personality and innovation willingness, innovation behavior depends on the level of support available in an organizational environment. The data used in this study were collected from 74 R&D teams (418 employee participants) in technology companies in Taiwan, and a multi-level analysis was conducted to investigate the relationships among job stressors, creative self-efficacy, and employees' sustained innovation behavior, as well as the role of the organizational innovation climate between creative self-efficacy and employees' innovation behavior. The research findings revealed significant positive relationships between challenge stressors and employees' sustained innovation behavior, as well as significant negative relationships between hindrance stressors and employees' sustained innovation behavior, mediation effects of creative self-efficacy on job stressors and employees' sustained innovation behavior, and moderation effects of the organizational innovation climate on employees' creative self-efficacy and sustained innovation behavior. An enterprise could place some working-related stress on employees and create a rich internal innovative climate to induce innovation behavior in its members.
