Business or corporate culture refers to the beliefs and behaviours that determine how a company's employees and management interact and deal with their clients and suppliers, and each other. It sits at the core of a company’s ideology and practice, and will affect every aspect of the business. It is more often than not implied, rather than deliberately defined, and tends to develop organically over time from the cumulative traits and behaviours of the people within the company.
A company's culture will be reflected in its communications, office or home-working set-up, employee benefits, dress code, turnover, its people, its treatment of and relationship with clients, client satisfaction, and each and every other aspect of its operations.
Business culture, whether it is deliberately defined or grown organically, sits at the core of a company’s ideology and practice, and will affect every aspect of the business. One in four UK workers, or 25%, are considering leaving their current job within the next 12 months, citing job dissatisfaction as the main reason, according to recent research from Reed.co.uk.
With thousands of dissatisfied employees and companies large and small struggling because of their mismanaged company cultures, it is clear that a major shift is happening in the workforce and people becoming ever more aware.
