6 Characteristics of a Strong Corporate Culture


All corporate organizations, big or small, have a culture. They are defined by it. Corporate culture gives identity to every organization. To be more precise: it is what gives a company its personality.

Like an individual, a culture defines the way how your corporation interacts within itself and to the outside world, such as your trade partners, your suppliers, and especially, your clients. Culture also serves as an inspiration and a motivation for your employees; it serves as their guide in their actions within the bounds of being a part of your company.  Corporate culture actually covers a vast field such as when your corporation has a healthy, happy and productive work environment, and it attracts employees. How your employees describe their workplace, how well they comprehend the business, and how they view themselves and their role of your organization are also a part of it.  Article continues here
