Shared values between employees and employers can optimise productivity.
The corporate culture of an organisation may be defined as 'the system of shared values' that exists within the corporate structure of an organisation. The existence of a corporate culture implies that there is a common set of values and norms that form the basis for all work practices and procedures that are carried out within the organisation.
These values represent:
• how employees believe they will be treated by management
• how managers treat each other
• how customers will be treated and how customers expect to be treated
• how the organisation interacts with other organisations and government agencies
• how the organisation views the wider environment and the level of corporate ethics and social responsibility that is evident in the actions of the organisation
Management will act as a role model for their employees and their behaviour should mirror what the organisation is attempting to achieve through its goals and objectives. Management must provide the necessary infrastructure to train and to educate the employees with respect to this corporate culture and to ensure that they are properly motivated.
