"How can I instill our company culture in our leaders and managers in ways that are not only trainable and sustainable but improve our productivity?"
The personality of a company
“We believe that it’s really important to come up with core values that you can commit to. And by commit, we mean that you’re willing to hire and fire based on them. If you’re willing to do that, then you’re well on your way to building a company culture that is in line with the brand you want to build.” – Tony Hsieh, CEO, Zappos
A COMPANY CULTURE
Employees’ overall ratings of their company’s qualities, like collaboration, work environment, and mission and value alignment, are 20% higher at companies with strong cultures. - Culture IQ
Company culture is essentially the personality of a company: how employees behave in the company and how the organization gets things done. Company culture consists of company values, vision, beliefs, and habits. The most important part of any company is the people. So when work culture isn’t great, company performance also suffers.
According to Forbes, culture has to do with “company vision, values, norms, systems, symbols, language, assumptions, beliefs, and habits.” Company culture is something that exists in your company’s DNA, not something that employees bring with them.
Some companies, for example, have a very team-oriented culture with participation from workers at all levels whereas other companies have a more formal and traditional work culture. Other companies--like Google--have an informal and comfortable culture. Whatever your company culture, it matters to the overall performance of the company.

Creating a culture of engagement requires more than completing an annual employee survey and then leaving managers on their own. It requires an organization to take a close look at how critical engagement elements align with their performance development and training, approach to teamwork, and human capital strategy. Our method at POWERS is to do just that, working shoulder-to-shoulder on meeting the challenge in a comprehensive, sustainable way.
