Business culture affects productivity and performance, it informs the way customers are cared for or not. It affects service standards, product quality and safety, employee behaviours such as attendance and punctuality and high level issues such as concern for the environment and the community.
Business culture within an organisation can be seen clearly by the way a business:
And critically, how committed the people are to the business goals.
At People Strong we help business leaders to set and reinforce the right business culture.
As businesses change it is critical to realign culture to achieve high performance and business success. When people know and feel supported by the business culture they are more engaged in their work which in turn encourages higher levels of enthusiasm, productivity and growth.
On what high-performing companies should be striving to create: A great place for great people to do great work.”
