Assessing and Building Workplace Cultures to Enhance Long-Term Business Profitability
Pragmatic people would agree the more engaged and motivated a workforce is to the activities of an organization, the more successful that business will be. Then why do so many companies struggle to build and maintain a highly engaged work culture? We have dealt with leaders from some of the best workplaces in the United States to help understand this business challenge. Strategy People Culture has seen businesses struggle with equilibrium between process/control and creating an environment which yields the most return from their people. The appropriate balance will typically make organizations more profitable. Strategy People Culture will help organizations bind that connection to make their business stronger through the following:
- Assisting executives and other members of management become better leaders.
- Providing objective analysis on the current day culture of the organization.
- Helping business leaders understand and identify their desired culture and accountability for achieving that culture.
- Challenging business leaders on their strategic vision and how that relates to corporate culture.
- Effectuating cultural change.
Leaders often are faced with managing multiple objectives, assessing their business in the wake of national and global policies, political environments, and regulatory changes. These dynamics challenge business leaders to be responsive and continuously evaluate where the business is going and who has accountability for it. Strategy People Culture can help.
Frequently Asked Questions
The wonderful thing about organizational culture is there is no singular answer to this question. Culture is a continuously created environmental phenomenon. What works in one organization may not necessarily work in another organization. The best workplace cultures are in companies that know what their organization's culture is and are deliberate about what the culture is and aligning this effectively to the organization's operation purpose.
Every member of the team contributes to organizational culture.
When your company isn't sure what their culture is, struggles around alignment, has operational issues, is experiencing high turnover, isn't getting proper productivity, or in general, feels there is not good employee engagement; these are all signs your company could benefit from some consulting help in this space.
Culture is more of a byproduct of effective leadership. Leadership should be deciding what behaviors they are looking for in their employees to drive desired organizational success. Good leadership will be stewards of these behaviors and hold employees accountable who exhibit opposite behaviors.
