All organisations have a culture and, more often than not, numerous sub-cultures. Your organisation’s culture is defined and personified by the way people throughout the workforce behave.
The more aware you and your workforce are of the desired culture for your organisation and the associated behaviours, the more likely you are to build a strong organisational culture or personality.
To quickly test the strength of your culture take a minute to consider how people would describe your organisation’s personality. The easier it is to answer this question provides a guide as to how strong your culture is.
