How is it like to work in this company? It is a question everyone asks before he or she considers a new job opportunity. Why is it that most of our questions are around “feel” of the organization?

Digital disruption of business models
While culture has always been the fabric that held organizations together, it has now come to the fore against the backdrop of disruption businesses are facing. Earlier, large companies had distinct advantages that helped them dominate the business world– access to capital, strong distribution network and reputation – all of which helped them win consumer confidence and loyalty.
