If you want to change the culture of your business, it is not enough to simply add a new coffee machine to the office kitchen or dream up a Halloween fancy dress competition. If you are serious about changing the culture in your business and the workplace then you need to change the actual look and feel of a business and the behaviour of the employees through a culture transformation.
It is an opportunity for your business to change the way it operates in a way that will deliver a competitive advantage over your rivals and one that will address a fundamental issue that has brought the business significant challenges over the years.
But this is not like a rebranding exercise where you change your logo and everything is a-okay. It is the widespread transformation of employee behaviour, their approach to work, client relationships and the introduction and strengthening of a diverse workforce that can bring benefits to productivity, creativity and employee retention.
It is important because it can help companies set themselves up for future growth and success. It can boost the companies profile and make your workplace a more inviting and welcoming place for people to want to work in.
It can increase employee engagement and sense of belonging which brings additional advantages including productivity and workplace morale.
Sometimes it is obvious that a company needs to make serious changes to their workplace culture because of a lack or morale in the office, poor financial performances or friction between staff.
A culture change can be required when a company takeover has been competed or a business has gone through serious redundancies or hiring programmes.
And sometimes, it is needed because of pressure to change. The Me Too Movement helped to bring much needed awareness to this issue and finally forced a lot of companies into workplace culture changes to help tackle among other things sexism, racism and gender diversity.
