The Deeper Importance of Organizational Culture

Organizational culture is a hard asset for businesses. However, through our experience in consulting, PeopleWorks has seen too many executives treat it as an abstract black-box. Because it’s tricky to define, the organizational culture is left to evolve on its own. But PeopleWorks, defying the norm, can take your company’s culture and then define it, measure it, analyze it, and improve it.

Organizational Culture

Because organizational culture is, by nature, difficult to define, PeopleWorks undertakes the beginning of our consultation with our Culture Alignment Assessment. It’s a multi-faceted assessment, but it’s been proven with outstanding results.

To begin, we draw from three key data points: customer perspective, an online survey tool created by us, and (based on survey feedback) a set of interviews with a cross-section of employees.

The primary goal of PeopleWorks is to improve five Culture Leading Indicators (CLIs):

  1. Organizational Perspective
  2. Organizational Values
  3. Leadership Behavior
  4. Work Systems
  5. Work Practices

The Culture Alignment Assessment allows us to help you establish a baseline by measuring those three data points. Once all of the data is compiled from our assessment, we now have a solid picture of your culture, as opposed to just an idea. With this graspable concept, we present an executive summary of overall culture health, strengths and gaps, and recommendations that, if implemented, can solidify your culture as a hard corporate asset that drives results in the future.

The ultimate goal is to create an ongoing process that constantly improves the five CLIs and, in turn, results in a positive organizational culture. The benefits of a positive culture are innumerable; it results in the attraction and retention of top talent, stronger customer loyalty, an increase in innovation, growing revenue and profitability, and more.

Change is inevitable, but it can lead to positive results. If you want your company to be more desirable by clients and employees, call PeopleWorks at 800-505-3978.
