If asked to describe your company culture in five words, what would you say?
Maybe your company culture is so well-defined that you’d be able to rattle them off without hesitation.
More often than not, though, a company’s culture is implied rather than explicitly defined. If that’s the case at your workplace, you’re missing a huge opportunity: a strong company culture can contribute to improved employee communication, collaboration, wellness and performance.
If your company falls into the “implied culture” camp, you’ll probably be able to come up with two or three adjectives immediately before pausing to reach for two appealing–yet accurate!–terms. Among the most common words companies use to describe their culture (and their employees) are talented, driven, dedicated, innovative and ambitious.
