Workplace culture determines how employees see themselves as part of the organization, relate to customers, interact with authority, approach problem-solving, make strategic decisions, and understand the business overall.

What makes a strong culture? Successful corporate culture is not a mission statement on the wall or merely defined by the work environment you create.  Fads like installing a ping pong table, open creative space, or free craft beer are not necessarily indicators of a great corporate culture. 

In a recent survey, Dale Carnegie examined the perceptions of senior leaders as they relate to the strength of their own company cultures, beliefs about its importance and impact, and actions they are taking to improve it.

We identified Culture Champions, companies who successfully create cultures that engage employees, and uncovered the attitudes and behaviors that set them apart. Driving a culture that engages employees is a critical element for success and our fundamental responsibility as leaders.

Join us for an opportunity to learn more, reflect and identify ways to enhance your own corporate culture.
