Instructor for this course

After many years of working within companies, consulting to dozens of different companies, and teaching about companies in an MBA program, I’ve learned how important it is to create a culture based on values, to teach and reinforce those values, and to make sure that they trickle down to all levels in the organization. Study after study reveal the importance of people feeling good about their workplace.  The culture of the company and the personality of the employee must be a good fit.

In this course we define what we mean by company culture, explore ways of achieving it, and maintaining the culture we want. We will offer suggestions as to how you can improve your company culture (if you so desire).  

Although company culture starts at the C level, HR has a vital role in its articulation and maintenance.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize what is meant by Company Culture.
  • Discover the elements that go into creating a successful company culture.
  • Explore ways to create and/or enhance their company culture.
  • Identify the elements needed to assure all levels of the organization maintain the desired culture of the company.
