Creating a Culture for Care
The culture of an organisation is the pattern of beliefs, values, attitudes, norms, unspoken assumptions and entrenched processes that shape how people behave and work together. It is a very powerful force and something that remains, even when teams change and individual staff move on.
Having a culture that supports staff to engage, develop their skills to match your organisations values and goals and learn and develop has a huge impact on relationships, performance, staff morale and effectiveness. You are showing them that you are invested in them and care about them individually. This also advertises that your business is an excellent place to work in to attract new employees, growing the reputation of your business.
An excellent culture at work can underpin successful change, make your organisation a place where people will want to work and attract top talent, improves teamwork and performance.
Leadership and management of staff can make or break a culture and is reliant on decisions you make, the values you show and how you manage, communicate with, and support your staff.
