What is workplace culture?
The most universally accepted definition of workplace culture related to organizational development is, “the way things are done around here.” Culture is a way of being. It reflects the conscious and subconscious values of the organization.
Your workplace culture is who you are and what you stand for. Ideally, it should be consistent with the way you want your customers to see you.
What is workplace culture how does it relate to financial performance?
Workplace culture, which we can also think of as cultural capital, is a measure of the value that can be placed on this way of being or the “personality” of a collective. Strong, agile organizational cultures consistently out-perform ones that don’t provide purpose, meaning and context.
