Do You Even Know What Your Culture Is Any More?

May 31, 2022 Jamie Notter

Two years ago you probably had at least a rough sense of what your workplace culture was like. Then suddenly it was the pandemic, remote work, hybrid events, and now return to the office, so today it seems all up for grabs. Ask two of your employees what your culture is like, and you might get three different answers (or more!).

That’s a problem. Because, as I posted recently, the great resignation has a lot of people thinking about jumping ship, and the organizations with the clear, strong cultures are more likely to be the places where the good people land. And I know I don’t need to tell you this, but you will never have a clear, strong culture if you don’t even know what it is right now.

So here’s the simple solution: our culture assessment. If you haven’t assessed your culture in a while, you should do it now. And while I know I’m biased on this, our assessment is particularly effective because it doesn’t measure whether your people are happy or not—it shows you the nuanced patterns in your culture and where you stand along the continuum of traditional to futurist. When you see the patterns as they really are, you can quickly figure out what needs to be done to make your culture clear and strong, even in these crazy, changing times. That clarity can make the difference between a well-oiled machine and hair-on-fire stress.

Or you can just guess, and change stuff randomly. Let me know how that works out for you.

Our assessment includes a live debrief of the data and a written culture patterns report, plus you have access to the online platform where you can do your own slicing and dicing of the data. The cost is $8,000 for organizations with under about 150 employees. Let me know if you want to set one up.
