    Culture Wars: Whose Side Are You On? (webinar)

    Share this event:

    One of the most challenging tasks for an organization is to define its culture. While leaders in the organization often think that they know how,  the words to describe it - especially to external parties - are often illusive. Culture can vary from department to department and site to site. The reality is that organizational culture is being crafted each and every day by the development of policy (or lack thereof), organizational precedent and individual behavior.

    So just who DO we say we are when courting a candidate? Do our actions measure up to the flowery words of our job descriptions? How do we then help a new hire get acclimated to and navigate the organization?

    Let’s talk about it.

    This interactive discussion will allow the participant to:
    • Define organizational culture and identify personal values and the role they play in how you define your organization’s culture.
    • Understand the impact of culture on an organization and how to drive a culture that supports effective hiring and onboarding.
    • Be exposed to the components of cultural competency.
    • Identify cultural mismatch and how to leverage strategies in support of employee retention e.g. winning the “war”!
