What is Culture?
“Defined expectations of behavior, words, symbols, habits, values, and beliefs that directly impact an organization’s work environment, vision & mission, ethical practices, objectives, and performance standards.”
Culture is the “secret sauce” that makes a company succeed. It is based on the belief system of its founders, which includes:
- What they value,
- how they reward staff,
- what they do for fun, and
- the structure (or lack of structure) they create.
