Growing start-up or expanding small business. Mergers, acquisitions & reorganizations. New leadership. Burnt-out employees. They all have their unique challenges, but the one thing they all have in common is their strain on culture.
With a strained culture, it’s hard to drive results. Our culture and talent intelligence system helps you align culture to business strategy so you can drive better organizational effectiveness.
If you ask 100 people to define their organizational culture, you’ll likely get 100 different answers. The definition of culture can be elusive, so posting your flexible work week, dress-down Fridays, or a belief in diversity & inclusion on a website is not particularly insightful for prospective or current employees.
Culture doesn’t have to be so elusive. It’s simply the collective behaviors, motivators, values, and work energizers of your employees – manifested by all of the interactions – good and bad – between team members each day.
And just like other business outcomes, culture is in fact measurable and manageable, and the opportunity to change it is achievable.
You must first decide what that culture looks like:
You can baseline the current culture by assessing behaviors, motivators, and work energizers of each team member. This establishes the team’s strengths and gaps, while also revealing why particular issues might exist. With that data on gaps, you can then establish an ideal target culture that gets you closer to your aspirational culture.
Establishing, sustaining or transforming your culture is achievable, but unfortunately there are forces at play that undermine those efforts – and we’re all familiar with them:
Leadership Changes: at the executive and team leader levels can create change fatigue and disrupt employee productivity.
Mergers & Acquisitions: create organizational uncertainty and produce stress and anxiety for team members.
Economic Downturns: or even bad quarterly results cause people to fear downsizing and worry about job security.
The good news is that managed culture can survive these common, cyclical changes. To effectively manage your culture, you must:
Your team or company culture is the collective behaviors, motivators, values, and work energizers of its employees. When a team shares purpose and is aligned on goals & strategy, team members will be more deeply engaged in their work, and productivity will increase.
