“Culture eats strategy for breakfast”

Monday 29 June, 2015

A wise man once said, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”. This wise man was Peter Drucker, a talented American consultant who has been described as the “Founder of modern management”. Culture is quickly becoming one of the most crucial factors of driving a company’s success. So get behind the wheel and create a culture in your company.

Deloitte’s 2015 Global Human Capital Trends survey revealed that culture is one of the top talent challenges facing business leaders, as well as engagement and employee retention. Today, more than half of business leaders across the world rate this issue as “urgent”, which is considerably more than last year where this was only around 20%.

Nowadays a company’s employment brand is public information, so if you are not a great place to work, people will find out fast. This puts the power back in the jobseeker’s hand, so it’s important that your company has a culture, and that it is one to be talked about.

Washington-based company Gallup which specialises in customer engagement published new research recently which showed that only 31% of employees are engaged at work, 51% are disengaged and 17.5% are actively disengaged. The new research also shows that younger workers were the least engaged.

“If you do not manage culture it manages you and you may not even be aware of the extent to which this is happening” - Edgar Schein, Professor MIT Sloan School of Management. So now is the time to enhance your culture, which will in-turn engage your employees and create better results. Here at OneShift we understand how crucial cutlure is for a company, which is why our culture is certainly one to be talked about. Read about our culture at: https://au.oneshiftjobs.com/careers/
