Culture doesn’t save a company

Inspired by some truly great conversations around HR and general people management over the last few days, I came across this piece of research by #Linkedin from 2015.

Who or what really lies at fault for businesses that are unable to provide employees with a satisfying role that can provide opportunities for advancement whilst being in a productive environment that fosters great #culture throughout the organisation is unknown and varies so much.

But to have a place where compensation and benefits are attractive, people recognised and rewarded with work that is challenging, stimulating and encourages growth throughout, all whilst having strong #leadership and #management to aid in the mission of the company is something so many clearly desire.

I won’t blame poor leadership or jump on the millennial blame game. But over the last few weeks these conversations with friends, colleagues, HR and #legal professionals have really been inspiring as to how many are doing things so poorly, but most importantly – those who are doing things the right way!

Hats off to the organisations who genuinely have happy, productive and empowered members of staff.

Don’t hide behind the word ‘culture’, Friday pizzas & Fifa games. Go be awesome!
