- When it comes to culture, the lived experience can be different from stated values. Culture is a pattern of behaviors and the way work is done, rather than simply perks, working environment, and policy.
- Executives’ active participation in culture change is paramount. If they aren’t willing to change the way they behave, attempts to shift the culture will fail.
Impact and Result
- Executives need to clarify how the culture they want will help achieve their strategy and agree on the focus values that will have the maximum impact.
- HR needs to measure the current state of culture and facilitate the process of leveraging existing elements while shifting undesirable ones.
