‘Culture does not make people – people make culture’
Thank you very much to all who contributed to the recent survey of the importance of ‘culture’ in the workplace. 85% of you opted for ‘organisation culture’ as much more important that salary, location and facilities combined.
Culture within the organisation is fast becoming the currency of choice for the recruitment and retention of staff. Salary level, once the primary purpose of who we worked for, is now only the most important factor for 1 in 6 people while location is most important to only 1 in 30.
85% of us see organisational culture as the most important factor in an organisation. That means that nearly 9 out of 10 staff will decide if they are a cultural fit for your business and if the business is one for them.
It would also suggest that customers are also deciding on how an organisations culture looks or feels like in deciding on whether it becomes a loyal customer.
No longer can we ignore this impact of culture.
What do you feel is the most important factor with an organisation?
