Corporate Governance and Ethics
When I think about our company culture, I think about how we do things around the office. And I mean that in the broadest sense of the term - how we interact with customers, how we deal with new employees, how we approach difficult tasks and problems. Culture is a strong word and can mean a lot of things.
Company culture is a nebulous thing to talk about, but it's incredibly important to the long-term success of your business. It's the way you do things around work. It can be as simple as how you handle vacation or sick days, or whether your office has a strict dress code, or if you take the time to celebrate successes together. For many people, company culture is their favourite part of what they do - it's a key element in employee satisfaction and retention.
Your company culture is made up of your people, practices, and philosophy. Your people are your employees and customers, who can be very different but are important to the experience you provide in all ways. Your practices are the things you do that affect how your business works, like how you communicate and how you run meetings. And your philosophy is the set of values that guide everything you do in a way that supports your mission.
