Corporate Culture Audit
Corporations and businesses experience internal crises every day across the United States. Sometimes it’s an isolated incident, but repetitive patterns could be indicative of a much larger issue and an internal audit is warranted.
What is Corporate Culture?
Corporate culture is the manifestation of the relationship between leadership and their employees. It is sometimes referred to as organizational culture. It concerns how policies and communication from the top of a corporation can directly influence the level of employee engagement and satisfaction at multiple levels of an organization. When a company’s management does not show initiative to improve operations surrounding these types of complaints, it can create a culture of silence & resentment within the workforce. Healthy corporate culture creates a cycle of satisfaction and productivity that both benefits the bottom line and improves employee engagement for a balanced, stream of operations. When your corporate culture has declined significantly, an internal audit is necessary.
The root of non-engagement from employees can often be traced back to problems within the organization. Sometimes it is as simple as employees feeling undervalued by their leadership. It can be more serious in other cases like that of a harasser or bully on your team that creates a hostile workplace culture. With our corporate culture audit program, your organization or corporation can identify the risks within your structure that directly threaten your prosperity. A corporate culture audit can be a treasure trove of information for leadership on how to improve your corporation from within for a better future. We provide expert recommendations that can improve your corporation from within and correct the cycle of corporate culture.
