Defining Your Unique Corporate Culture
A brilliant culture is the beating heart of any thriving organisation. There is a very real, tangible difference between a team that just functions and a team that consistently shines.
But what do we mean by organisational culture? Simply put, culture is values and beliefs of an organisation brought to life. These behaviours define how a company goes about its business.
Culture is a surprisingly powerful thing.
A positive culture embodies the personality of your organisation and has the capacity to inspire and engage employees.
Alternatively an ill-managed culture can alienate and push staff away. Companies that strive to create an authentic and purpose-driven culture are proven to have significantly lower staff attrition rates, higher productivity levels, and stronger profit margins.
Helping craft your business’s unique and captivating culture is one of the joys of leading an organisation.
taking the time to step away and consider what it is your business stands for and how you’re different from your competitors is a unifying experience.
And having done it ensures you attract the right future employees, aligned with what you’re about and strengthening your offer further.
Developing Organisational Culture
A successful business and great culture is made up of four pillars.
Your ‘why’? Why does your team work with you rather than anywhere else?
The values and behaviours that make up the identity of your team and culture and what you want to be known for
Ways of Working
The process and policies you use to do business these to propel your business forward
The energy your team have and bring to every project, in order to create brilliant work
The PUSH Culture Audit
The audit is an exploratory piece of work to do a deep dive into the company culture.
We will identify how employees feel about the company, what’s working and what opportunities there are for improvement – a real opportunity to see and work on blind spots. These are used to align visions, influence new processes and behaviours as well as build the teams energy, in order to help build a strong, cohesive and enduring culture.
