Corporate Culture Courses

What is Corporate Culture?

Corporate culture is a set of rules and values that define how a company responds to issues outside simple business transactions. Everything from the dress code to benefits falls under corporate culture, and the company's values often evolve over time. Building and maintaining a company's culture often involves a mission statement and a concerted effort from business leaders and human resources to define the company's values. The work environment often depends on a cohesive organizational culture, and employee morale could suffer without a consistent set of values.

Learn about Corporate Culture

Your company culture doesn't happen accidentally. It evolves organically but also includes conscious decisions about how employees are treated and what the organization values beyond just profit. A strong culture helps reduce employee turnover and provides guidance as the environment around the business changes. Learning about how corporate culture evolves could position you as a major player in your company. Even if your current culture evolved over time, at some point, you'll have to codify your company's beliefs and goals for actions outside business transactions. This process requires thought and care.
