Demystifying Organisational Culture

In general, HR departments think about organisational culture under two circumstances. One, when we do an employee engagement survey and two, when we undertake a change management initiative. But as people practices evolve there is a growing understanding that culture is the number one component that determines success through people for the business. As an HR practitioner, you need to be able to discuss culture with senior leaders, identify current culture and advise on strategies to make changes to the culture if required. You also need to ensure that your culture is leverage in the right way when it comes to values, employee value proposition and employee onboarding. And what about understanding the role of culture in creating a learning organisation and a high-performance organisation?

Join us for a day workshop to become comfortable with organisational culture as a topic of discussion and to understand the ecosystem of HR initiatives that grow from your culture. You will leave with practical ideas on establishing and measuring your organisation’s culture and toolsets to successfully incorporate culture into your HR initiatives.
