Stand back and consider your organisation:
How many employees can articulate its key objectives?
Are measures and rewards tied to these objectives?
Can employees see the connection between these measures and their own behaviour?
Do employees trust your managers? Are managers and employees open and honest with each other?
Creating organisational culture is the responsibility of leadership. Too many leaders, however, concentrate on profit and shareholder objectives. Of course, these are important, but how do you balance short term results with longer terms aspirations of employees and stakeholders i.e. how do you balance short term gain with longer term competitive advantage?
Every organisation has a culture and that culture - for better or for worse - is largely determined by what its leaders have chosen to measure and to reinforce with rewards. All organisations that want to be competitive need a defined corporate culture. The more explicit this culture and the closer it tallies with corporate strategies, the more effectively organisations can - or will be able - to compete.
We look at the role of your top team and what they should do and how they should do it to implement an organisational culture to deliver better performance, better motivation and better ability to compete.
We assess your current culture and determine which dimensions must be modified to increase the probability of successful change implementation.
We clarify to employees what success looks like in the workplace.
We then help design and implement an organisational culture that has immediate impact on behaviours and results.
Our Corporate Culture Service
Strategic changes that are consistent with your organisation's culture have a high probability for successful implementation. On the other hand, if the change is incompatible with your culture, poor implementation is the likely outcome. Culture, therefore, can be a formidable source of resistance or support to managing and implementing change successfully. Our service includes:
Tying meaningful employee objectives to performance management
Making service quality a strategic goal
Aligning processes, systems and employee behaviour to strategy
Delivering training to internalise behavioural norms
Aligning measures, rewards and recognition to employee objectives
