How Company Culture Affects The Employees

Published: September 12, 2016 In: HR Tech & AI


The Wikipedia definition for organizational culture states, “Behavior of humans within an organization and the meaning that people attach to those behaviors.”, however, this just gives a basic overview of the whole concept and does not really explain it. A company’s culture is basically defined by two components, i.e., the way a company runs and what are the values the company shares. 

A company’ s culture is pre-existing in the basic DNA of the organization and is something that the employees of the firm carry with them. The company culture is defined by a number of factors, such as the vision and mission of the company, the values that the company is based on, norms defined by the firm, system, language, beliefs, and habits that are followed by the company. All of these are integral components that help the employees and the consumers to identify the culture of the organization. The culture of an organization has a substantial impact on the employees of the firm, this is what helps them identify and connect to their organization. 

A company which believes in the certain set of values passes it on as a legacy through the years, if every employee connects to these values then they would be associated with the company for a longer period of time, they learn more, participate more and enjoy the time they spend in the organization.

However small or large the company maybe it is necessary for them to be to associate with the organization they work for and the culture of the organization plays an important role in that regard. A bad or undefined company culture would result in chaos and create distrust in the minds of the employees towards the company. Not every business has the ability to totally substance out a long haul arrangement for organization development and culture. Actually, particularly only a few organizations do this since it requests a specific trust in your organization's long haul survival – something that can be difficult to find in these dubious financial times.All things considered, in the event that the company has invested a ton of energy concentrating vigorously on the development and getting new workers, it may be a great opportunity to step back to see what sort of culture is emerging.
