Every organisation has a culture which works like a driving force for the workforce to perform. A culture consists of many elements like leadership, environment in the organisation, satisfaction at employee’s level, high performance and recognition of work in form of rewards. All these elements are very crucial and when any of these elements suffer, company as whole suffers.
Human resources department need to learn more about corporate culture if they wanted to have an impact on the business successfully. Culture or corporate culture can be defined as a way of thinking or to act in a particular way or behave in the organisation(Saks& Burke, 2012). Those employees who can understand the culture in a proper way can behave or act accordingly and that is why will be able to fit in properly. On the contrary, employees those who chose to behave or act in an opposite direction will not be able to sustain in the company for a long period of time.
A person who works in an organisation helps in creating culture and the kind of culture which will give them a competitive edge over others. If the culture of the company is such that relies on innovation and creativity then employees will also have to perform in the similar way which helps the company to sustain in the business for the long run (Saks& Burke, 2012). Therefore, corporate culture helps the organisation and human resources in adapting the external environment and strike a balance between internal and external environment.
