Operational Culture

"I know that my team will be much happier and more productive if my company culture is strong. How can I improve the work culture of my organization?"

The personality of a company

“We believe that it’s really important to come up with core values that you can commit to. And by commit, we mean that you’re willing to hire and fire based on them. If you’re willing to do that, then you’re well on your way to building a company culture that is in line with the brand you want to build.” – Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos

A COMPANY CULTURE

Employees’ overall ratings of their company’s qualities, like collaboration, work environment, and mission and value alignment, are 20% higher at companies with strong cultures. - Culture IQ 

Company culture is essentially the personality of a company: how employees behave in the company and how the organization gets things done. Company culture consists of company values, vision, beliefs, and habits. The most important part of any company is the people. So when work culture isn’t great, company performance also suffers.

According to Forbes, culture has to do with “company vision, values, norms, systems, symbols, language, assumptions, beliefs, and habits.” Company culture is something that exists in your company’s DNA, not something that employees bring with them.

Some companies, for example, have a very team-oriented culture with participation from workers at all levels whereas other companies have a more formal and traditional work culture. Other companies--like Google--have an informal and comfortable culture. Whatever your company culture, it matters to the overall performance of the company.

COMPANY CULTURE PROBLEMS

Most leaders believe accurately that a purposeful shift in culture is necessary to transform their business, but few know how to make this leap.

What if your leaders had a deep understanding of the behaviors that produce successful cultures and optimize performance, the insight on the methodology to implement these most important behaviors, and the visibility to see and measure the attainment to these behaviors real-time?

Creating a culture of engagement requires more than completing an annual employee survey and then leaving managers on their own. It requires an organization to take a close look at how critical engagement elements align with their performance development and human capital strategies.

WHY WORK CULTURE MATTERS

For employees, work culture is important because it can determine how much workers enjoys being at work. When an employee’s personal values, beliefs, and habits align with the company’s values and beliefs, they will fit in in the workplace, which can do a lot for the overall performance.

On the other hand, employees that have beliefs, values, and habits that don’t align with the company’s are not likely to enjoy being in the workplace, and it's imperative for companies to hire employees who fit in with their company culture.

The more the employees enjoy being at work, the higher the overall performance will be. They are also more likely to stay in a particular job for longer. Having low turnaround and retaining employees for longer will also help performance in the workplace.

HOW WORK CULTURE AFFECTS PERFORMANCE

When employees feel represented in the company culture, they will have a more positive relationship with the workplace. Research from the University of Warwick reveals that happy employees are 12% more productive than employees that are unhappy. In a company with a well-defined work culture and employees who fit into that culture, business goals are supported.

John Kotter assessed the cultures of 200 organizations and analyzed the way culture affected performance in the employees, and he found that businesses who empowered their employees to live their company culture outperformed those businesses that did not.
