Organizational culture is formed by a wide range of things, including the industry, employees’ average age (or generation), employees’ skill level, and the stage of life most employees are in, just to name a few. But there are ways that organizational culture can be both indirectly and directly influenced by the organization, including the HR team. Let’s outline some of them.
Influencing the Organizational Culture
Here are a few ways HR can have an impact on organizational culture:
- Benefits on offer can impact culture much more directly than some may realize. For example, providing a generous parental leave package will go a long way toward creating a culture that is supportive of parents. Or, providing a flexible workday or remote work option can influence how the organization judges performance, encouraging judgment based on outcomes, not hours. These are just a couple examples of how benefit packages can influence culture.
