What is Organisational Culture?
A few years ago, YouBecome did some research work to look into how one could define organisational culture in a more tangible way to help our customers. When we conducted this research we looked at several studies principle among which were from Gallup, Bain and Company and McKinsey. All three organisations looked at some of their leading clients who were performing in an outstanding way and then looked at the common traits that existed amongst them.
As part of our work, we distilled these findings into six key elements we call pillars. They are as follows:
- TRUST and EMPOWERMENT at all levels of the business
- A STRONG and ACCESSIBLE LEADERSHIP TEAM with a SHARED mission and purpose
- AN EXTERNAL CUSTOMER FOCUS
- A passion for PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
- Outstanding COMMUNICATION AND DEPARTMENTAL COLLABORATION
- A healthy GROWTH ATTITUDE
With a strong culture comes strong commercial performance. We also see engaged employees who are more productive and motivated. Culture and Engagement are inextricably linked. Focus on improving the above six factors and engagement improves as a result.
One of the biggest challenges is how? That is where we come in. We have a tried and trusted framework that can help you achieve better results and greater engagement.
