The study examined the influence of Human Resources functions on Organizational Culture in the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Nigeria. Multistage sampling technique was used to select 146 respondents with the use of a well-structured questionnaire. Data collected were analysed using descriptive and inferential statistical tools. Results revealed the mean age of the respondents were 39.2 years, majority (58.9%) were males, 89.1% were married and mean income of the employees were #81,610 per month. Major human resources functions that influenced organizational culture identified were: recruitment and selection (x̅=3.67), performance appraisal (x̅=3.67), career planning (x̅=3.58), training and development (x̅=3.36) and compensation administration (x̅=3.25). Also, employees abide with the organisation culture based on the way they preserved and maintained by the employees (x̅=3.05) and code of conduct were adhered to in the studied organisation (x̅=3.05). More so, significant association existed between marital status (χ2=44.21, p≤0.05), educational status (χ2=71.03, p≤0.05), age (r=0.079, p≤0.005), years of working experience (r=0.031, p≤0.005), human resources strategies (r=0.389, p≤0.005) and organizational culture.
