HR Views: Hiring to Company Culture
Is your company culture more than writing on the wall?
Unfortunately, at many companies, company culture is something that is written down by the leadership, placed on an inspirational plaque, and left for the dust bunnies to eat. When the leaders are asked about company culture, they point to the wall, not understanding that its the work and not the walls which create the culture.
I have a culture for What Works Coaching and What Works Recruitment that is expressed in how we do business. If you ask those who are part of my company, they don’t just recite the culture, they work it!
What Works Coaching helps individuals and companies in crisis or transition discover opportunity and take action to create results.
THE WHAT WORKS TEAM IS:
Passionate: We are passionate about what we do and why we do it.
Enthusiastic: We radiate enthusiasm. Our clients love our energy and they love to work with us because of it.
Proactive: If we see something that needs to be handled, we do so proactively. We openly and freely exchange ideas.
Original: We come up with original processes and utilize those versus someone else’s cookie cutter. We treat every client as the individual they are.
Empathetic: We put ourselves in our clients shoes and offer solutions with compassion.
Supportive: We are our clients biggest cheerleaders and supporters. We support each other the same way.
Responsible: Civic and social responsibility and responsible client service is at the core of all we do. We always act with integrity.
Honest: Rigorous honesty, internally and with our clients, is our constant policy.
Culture checks come with honest inquiry at the time when the culture itself is challenged? When a team knows to culture check on the parts of the culture they are most challenged by, they can improve themselves AND the service the company provides.
Is your culture infused in your human resources, operations, and communication – or is it just writing on the wall? Let us help you instill the culture your clients deserve.
