The goal of this article is to evaluate climate in one business enterprise and to suggest possibilities for its improvement. The following objectives were set to attain the established goal: 1) to disclose a contemporary attitude towards organisational climate; 2) to carry out quantitative research on climate in a business enterprise; 3) to suggest possibilities for improving organisational climate. The methods of scientific literature analysis and anonymous questionnaire survey were applied in the research, which allowed evaluating current climate of business enterprise objectively and suggesting possibilities for its improvement. So far Lithuanian business enterprises have not been investigated following the four factors predetermining climate in an enterprise, i.e., motivation, leadership, communication and organisational structure. Thus, possibilities for improving climate in a business enterprise can be applied in other business companies, which aim at ensuring successful and productive activities of their employees. The research results showed that good climate in an enterprise is predetermined by 1) friendly, understanding, kind, collaborating colleagues, who get along with each other; 2) a democratic, understanding and collaborating leader; 3) motivating salary. Considering this, it is recommended for a leader: 1) to build a team, whose members experience positive emotions working and relaxing together; 2) to contact with employees as much as possible; 3) to create an innovative and unique system of staff motivation that is suitable namely for his / her company. These possibilities for improving climate could contribute to solving problems not only in the investigated enterprise but also to dealing with those in a big number of other enterprises
