Empowering employees to drive innovation starts with understanding organizational culture.

Why does culture matter for your business?

Culture is a catalyst for engagement, collaboration and innovation. When culture and business goals align, employees are more engaged which yields higher returns. Beyond engaging employees for the sake of revenue, a healthy culture fosters collaboration and innovation. Hear University of Michigan Professor and Author; Jeff Degraff, discuss the power of aligning business goals and culture.


Which Culture is The Right Culture?


Context: After reviewing various studies, faculty from the University of Michigan created the competing values framework which highlighted four types of organizational culture. The four categories were: compete, collaborate, control and create. It's important to recognize the difference between each culture profile because organizations always have a dominant culture and may also contain many different subcultures. By understanding and accepting various cultures organizations can harness the differences for success.
