This study empirically sought to establish the pattern of relationship between employees’ altruism and organisational adaptation in Nigeria. As a cross sectional survey, the instrument for data collection was the questionnaire which top executives of the organisations responded to. Data collected were presented and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The 17.0 version of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was used to perform a Spearman Rank Order Coefficient Correlation and the result revealed that altruism is significantly and positively associated to organisational adaptation. The study concluded that the exhibition of altruism among employees of Nigeria domestic aviation companies resulted in sharing of knowledge and consequently made the organisations adaptive; and recommended among others that (1) Leaders and managers of Nigeria domestic airline companies and by extension, all other Nigeria organisations should apply motivation to induce employees to exhibit altruistic behaviors (2) Managers should enshrine as part of their selection practices; the potentials to exhibit altruistic behaviors as constituent sub- condition for hiring.
