What is workplace culture?
Mirriam-Webster.com defines culture as:
“a way of thinking, behaving, or working . . . a set of shared attitudes, values, goals and practices that characterize an institution or organization.”
Culture is the personality of your business.
Your company culture reflects what is important to you, as the Leader, to your people and to your company. Your company culture is a strong message you send to the people you do business with every day – inside the company and out. Your company culture is a feeling.
To have a great company culture doesn’t mean you have to install a slide or sleeping pods – fun as that would be! A great company culture invites yourself and your people into a shared vision. It is an experience you create together every day – driven by an agreed upon and codified set of values and aspirations.
Do you like your company culture? Do your people?
