New Work Talks – Shaping company culture

Meeet-Mitte, Tuesday, 10 th of September 2019, 7:00 PM:

Shaping company culture: elements, triggers and barriers

A strong company culture decreases turnover, creates better financial results, increases happiness and productivity, as well as competitiveness.

Yet getting to that point is one of the hardest tasks an organization can take on.

Culture is pervasive, it embeds every single formal and informal aspect of an organization, yet it’s elusive, it’s scaringly difficult to pinpoint and identify correctly.

That said, working with culture – identifying it, defining it, moving it and so on – is far from impossible, and in this event we’ll be hearing from people who have done it and lived to tell the story.

Each speaker will present a different perspective on company culture and what they’ve done. Key to that is how everyone belongs to very different environments. The experiment then is whether we can identify some common elements on:

  • what the most effective elements are when developing, moving or maintaining company culture within an organization
  • what the best triggers to activate those elements are
  • what barriers one can reasonably expect to encounter when working with those elements and triggers
