Foster the desired corporate culture at multiple levels.
Corporate culture is often implied, not expressly defined, and develops organically over time from the cumulative traits of influential people in the workforce.
Corporate culture is the sum of two parts: internal and external.
Internal corporate culture refers to what your directors, executives and workforce say and believe about the organisation’s reason for being. It also speaks to how their behaviour and actions reflect those statements and beliefs.
External corporate culture signifies how your clients, customers, suppliers, investors, communities and other stakeholders see your organisation and its values and mission.
The internal perspective determines employee engagement and productivity. The external angle impacts corporate reputation, customer support and investor decisions. It also has a significant impact on talent and recruiting campaign success.
The corporate culture infiltrates every aspect of the organisation’s mechanisms. An unhealthy business culture is bound to show symptoms like high turnover, secrecy, low levels of engagement and whistleblowing.
In the always-on social media and 24-hour news cycles, organisations may face more significant damage to their reputations than ever before when problems arise which is associated with culture.
At the same time, a positive culture is priceless in weathering crisis and, in some cases, preventing them. It’s also an asset in reputation management and reaching strategic objectives.
Achieving sustained health of the corporate culture requires that the organisation moves beyond structures, processes, and systems to address individual and collective behaviour.
