What is Culture?
An organisation’s culture refers to a company’s mission, objectives, expectations and values that guide its people.
Organisations with health cultures tend to be more successful because they have systems and values in place that enhance trust, performance, productivity and employee engagement.
VALUES: THE FOUNDATION OF CULTURE
When your people thrive, your organisation thrives.
