Organizational culture is not a new term for many of us !!
A great deal of ink and thoughts has been spent to understand the term Organizational culture. The term Organizational culture is used many times by Corporate Executives, many consultants (who make a living in assisting Organization to improve “culture”.) Conversationally when we ask employees to define Organizational culture the most common answer is “values of a group”
Gone are the days, when employees used to be satisfied with job security, even when Organizational culture wasn’t particularly good.
Organizational culture is not perks and compensation. It is more than that!!
Organizational culture is the environment that surrounds us at our workplace. It is a powerful element which we cannot see. An Organization culture is made up of values, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors of the team – members. These attributes are unspoken and unwritten.
Organizational culture is important to ensure that employees are happy and work productivity is good. It has great influences on behavior and thought within Organizations.
It encompasses many aspects of a business. Culture is about feelings, behaviors and meaningful relationships, not things. It involves trust and respect which comes from the top down. Collaboration is at the heart of good business culture.
How is Organizational culture formed?!?!
Every employee has an impact on the culture that is developed at work but the core values which are part of Organizational culture are influenced by Organization founder, executives and other managerial teams
Good V/s Bad culture
A bad culture usually develops gradually with harmful effects. It is toxic in nature and needs immediate correction.
It is seen in an Organization where there are differences in the relationship between Management and Staff. Other characteristics of a bad Organization culture is micromanagement, disrespectful or weak leadership, bullying behavior, a lack of trust, no flexibility, discrimination and zero praise all contribute to harmful company culture.
At the other end of the spectrum, a good company culture encourages personal growth, offers flexibility, fosters trust, encourages risk-taking and encourages praise and acknowledgment.
HR and Organizational culture:
A prospective candidate experiences a sense of our Organizational culture on the very first phone interaction from the HR personnel.
The applicant further forms an opinion of Organizational culture during the interview process. The applicant evaluates his/her thought on whether he/she is a good fit in this Organizational culture.
After the selected candidate joins us an employee, during the Induction program the HR personnel communicates the elements of the culture and the acceptable and unacceptable norms of the Organization
