Company Culture

What is Company Culture?

Company culture represents a set of shared values, goals and practices of an organisation. To understand the workplace culture of a company we should look into their working environment, company policies and employee behaviours.

An organisation’s culture can be explicitly and consciously cultivated over time. A strong culture influences employees to act accordingly to it.

There are various types of cultures. For example, some companies adopt a team-based culture that focuses on employee involvement. Other organisations prefer to use a more formal, traditional, or hierarchical management approach.
