Defining Company Culture

Company culture is the foundation of growing a successful company. A business without a defined culture is a business with no defined value. Employees act as they wish instead of the way you require. Clients see differences in company interactions from low level employees all the up to management. Business culture is the root of duplicated results for success.

Company that do not have a defined business culture philosophy actually do have business culture. It is usually just a bad business culture. Companies that do not define their business culture typically have bad employee hiring track record.

If your employees are not dressing appropriately after continually discussing their appearances, your business culture is not defined.

If your employees continue to be late, your business culture is not defined.

If you keep having bad employee moral, you haven’t defined your business culture.

If you dislike your employees’ up-and-down performance, you do not have a defined business culture.

Why is culture important?

It is never too late to implement a positive business culture into your company. It is a process that all of your employees and management will appreciate. The business culture once defined should have a mission value statement. It should define exactly what you want your business to look like from an outside prospective. Employees will actually start to thrive and like coming to work.

Have you ever been to business that has employees smiling and willing to help you at every turn? It almost seemed a little annoying at first, but then you catch yourself smiling. Feeling good about being there? Of course you have. Have you ever thought why can’t this be at my company? Yet you had no idea how to achieve such a change. It can be done. When done your business will operate in a way of increased profits, better employee engagement, and be a better environment.

The process of implementing a positive business culture starts with you. Yes you. Are you ready to work at it everyday. Business culture is NOT a “I wrote down a mission value statement so follow it” kind of thing. It’s a “Living” idea with actions that must slide down from the top to the bottom.

Once all the steps are defined, posted, and implemented the business culture is to be continued as a positive way of doing business.
