Teched Out: Culture Management Tools
By Nicholas Larche, Human Resources Manager & Corporate Counsel, ShopatHome.com
How do you define a company’s culture? The simplest answer I have come up with is that a company’s culture is defined by the values and beliefs of the people who work for it. I once worked for a company that set forth a compilation of “isms” – the guiding philosophies that all of that company’s workforce was expected to follow and work by. In my opinion, the purpose of the isms was to orient that company’s culture, but it failed to adequately define it. The isms became mantras that team members would repeat when they didn’t know the answer to a problem or catchphrases managers would use when they didn’t know how to counsel their direct reports.
