Young Brands is one good example. The way they grow and implement change is attributed to having a great organisational culture.
Bad examples of culture…
News of The World and UBS are examples where poor patterns of behaviour were allowed to form a toxic culture.
How is culture created?
By the messages people receive about what is valued in the organisation. Those messages are unspoken rather than something that is said or on the wall.
They come from:
- Behaviours – punctuality, rewards etc
- Symbols – Car spaces, offices, time, money etc
- Processes and systems – reinforce the message.
