The truth is that many organizations have had a culture that was not intentionally created, but rather accidentally as the workplace has transformed.
A company culture is not housed in the four walls of an office or corporate headquarters; instead, it is the values, beliefs and behavior practiced by employees and driven by leaders. It is important to understand this, because remote workplaces are here to stay in some form, as they are cost saving for organizations, while allowing employees to have a better work-life balance, making remote offices too valuable to eliminate.
The goal is, therefore, to achieve an intentional culture regardless of a person’s physical location, which will result in more productive and happy employees, which consequently will help improve a company’s return on investment (ROI).
Technology is the way to evolve it after you’ve identified the type of culture you have, to lead your organization to an intentional culture that complements a corporate strategy. Before implementing a plan to leverage technology to achieve that goal, however, management and HR need to understand what kind of culture currently exists in that organization.
Signs of an Accidental Culture:
Signs of an accidental culture include:
- Teams consistently miss their targets, indicating misalignment with the company’s strategy or action plan.
- Employees not performing up to expectations, reflecting a lack of understanding of the company’s culture and goals.
- Unhappy staff, low employee morale, and high attrition rates, suggesting an unclear or inconsistent workplace culture.
If any of these issues are present in your organization, it’s important to take action to address them and move towards building an intentional culture.
