Issue 55: Defining the Workplace Culture

Organizational culture is a key component in the success of any organization, regardless of its size. However, aligning organizational goals, structure, processes, people, and culture is no easy feat, especially when many organizations are going through a digital transformation phase and employees working remotely.

What organizational culture does is that it creates the cohesion between people, jobs, and the workplace through common beliefs, strengthens organizational values and ultimately improves organizational operations. In these challenging times, it is important to remind ourselves to relook at our organization’s culture and how to promote positivity to improve talent acquisition and retention, increase employee engagement and lead to better business performance.
