"To win in the marketplace, you must first win in the workplace.."
Organizational culture is a systematic arrangement of allocated traditions, ideologies, ethics the organization functions on. These are the ethics that govern the employee behavior and how they do their jobs, dress and act on it.
Vivek Bhaskaran, CEO of QuestionPro and Jamie Notter, noted author of the bestseller books, “When Millennials Take Over” and “Humanize” and the co-founder of WorkXo discussed workplace culture in a three-part webinar.
In the first of the three-part webinar, we discussed mapping organizational workplace culture using these eight culture markers:
In this webinar, we discussed the categories in which an organization falls under- traditionalist, contemporary and futurist. Also discussed in this webinar was the Workplace Genome model which differs with each organization. This is based on a 10 pointer scale on which culture is marked and based on the score, each organization falls under either of the above-mentioned categories.
This definition of culture is very different from all the other conventional ones where culture usually is related to words like quality, honesty, integration, excellence etc. Most organizations fail to understand culture is more about actions than mere words.
We discussed on how everyone compares but culture across multiple industries is varied like the software industry is more futuristic while nonprofits and manufacturing industries score the lowest. But, does that matter?
Culture is a vast topic and revolves around organizational management and productivity. In the second part of the webinar, Jamie and I spoke about culture management and metrics.
