It鈥檚 so clear the information given here. Actually, I鈥檓 working at a company where put the people first. What is valious for me. I鈥檓 very excited being there

In resume for all the text that we have read:
  1. Evaluate the culture in your job.
  2. Connect your values with the activities that you realize.
  3. Prepar a plan in order to apply in the organization.
  4. And always measure your progress.

Paraphrasing about what a company鈥檚 culture is

.
Company culture is what the CEO let happened, and what happens when the CEO is not there.

When a company have a bad culture is easy to notice that. In my first job, the coworkers rarely helped me when I needed it.

In a company it is very importan to have a leader not only a boss, leader involves into all matters of the company, boss only requires the work flows.

I believe that the culture of the company is very important to define the permanence of the employees and their job satisfaction.

My first aim for managing my international tech company

For instance, as Jess said before, the most important thing at our company is the team members, so if we work motivated with positive thoughts and if I give them enough tools that they need, certainly my team will be more productive.

鈥 Following, I will need to look how is the work environment of my team both physically and mentally, there is enough light, the places are so crowded, they need calm spaces, how are lunch spaces? How long they take from their houses to the workplace? Could It be possible to provide some transport for them?

Soon after I鈥檒l check what is the value-added or what are our values make us difference to our competitors. In addition, we need to ask our customers, how do they describe our company when they hear our name?


After that, once we might know what we need to change to get better in values such as communication, transparency, flexibility, and so on. As a consequence, I鈥檒l develop a plan where I shall have into a count the time, budget and the team leader available to manage and to involve every single collaborator of our company.

Thereafter, we have to measure and evaluate the progress to check if every single member is working in the same side to growth as the greatest team.

This course has been really helpful for me because I鈥檓 working in the human resources field and in my area, it鈥檚 super important to know about our employees and their welfare and environment to do better day per day.

The best way to track your process is tracking for goals, not for hours that you work in.

Excellent. In our actually work, We can make our teamwork much better too.

Really interesting!

Is so very important that you can treat with different culture

The 4th step is the most important to me, even though sometimes I do not track all the progress, it really helps me to see what areas I should strengthen.

I liked this quote: 鈥淓mployees with a good working environment tend to enjoy what they do.鈥

in my country(Colombia) I believe that one of the biggest problems why people do not continue in their jobs is because of the bad work environment, many bosses try to pressure their workers with fear and this creates insecurity and can even lead to workers making mistakes, for theses reasons, I believe that more than a boss, a leader is needed who motivates his or her workers and makes the best of each one of them.

I work in a little editorial company that management three scientific journals. My work is the management of all data input in the website of those journals, send papers to the editorial group and revisors; Then, I must supervise the layout of all journals, check that no having errors in the format, and compliment editorial norms.
The most important in my colleagues are making good work, but sometimes exist problems in the details of every issue of de journals. Authors鈥 first names and last names sometimes don鈥檛 are correct writing; pictures, ORCID, and others, including Biographies are not correct. But exist a spirit of enforcement and, all try to get better results. I support this collaborative spirit.

In my company we need to evaluate the current company culture, we are a remote company and they wait results but they don麓t think in how workers take the job.

Good information. Many companies fail to merge because the culture of the workers collide, so it is good to do an analysis and improve on that.

That鈥檚 true, not only matters the fact of the money but also the culture and the people who you are working with.

鈥淭he work is about trust and transparency鈥 Many chiefs should read this phrase, my actual chief doesn鈥檛 trust in ours, he makes us go to the office to track each other of work鈥

As manager you have to analyze yourself, because you are example for workers.

Hi everyone:

I will do the follow survey for determinate the answer to our questions:
What鈥檚 important for your workers?
What rules do they follow?
How does their daily routine look like?
Survey 鈫

  1. What do you consider that we must change in the culture of the company?
  2. What do you think of a culture with more flexibility and possibility to work remote?
  3. Do you have ideas for our organizational culture? Mention them.

Besides of the survey, I will do an observing study and I will review their behaviors and I will talk with them for get more information.

In my experience, I have put to understand that strategies as the work remote and the flexibility are motivation for the workers. I worked in a company per 7 years, only by the remote work and It was a good motivation. If I will be somebody that want to change a company for generate more motivation, I would begin with this.

Thanks everyone鈥

I鈥檓 thinking about de mision and vision鈥檚 company, Is it an equal? I mean, the culture company is building around they? Or how can we make the relation betwen both of them?

I start to like this course. I work for a global company and it is true about the culture. It is hard being a Latin in the middle of people that cannot make a joke or trying to be relaxed working and the only way to get a nice conversation with your co-workers is with a pint in the hand. However, I feel grateful for this opportunity even some people at work don鈥檛 call me by my name, they just shout up 鈥淐olombian鈥 and that is a nice way to feel that we are breaking the ice.

It is a whole plan for the people, because the culture = the people I like that

Well, as for me is important to know about the culture inside the company, level of job satisfaction, at the same time a manager cares about the profit, we need to evaluate more often the human capital, all employees needs recognized, and make a better payments plans, or helping financial options to be sure most employees has a higher level of wellness

It麓s important to think of people at the same level of profit.

Unfortunately most of the companies don鈥檛 respect or even value their people. They don鈥檛 really care about them.

  1. Evaluate your current company culture
  2. Connect your values with everyday activities
  3. Have a plan
  4. Measure the progress

culture = the people

Hello classmates

From my insight a company has to analyze so well the people to hire because if the workers don麓t work in the same way and id you don麓t set a clear rules to recognize the best workers so there are gonna be a lot of annoying in your company , the umprepared workers going to be a trubble and recognized employees aren麓t gonna to be the motivation to work hard .

If you have an important position in your company, it is your responsibility that the company culture permeates every person in your team as a whole.

Interesting.

Amazing!

If the companies will do this step, They will achieve good results. The text talk about the news

I think that is very important to do the strategy and involve all the employees in the grow of the company

Culture has to do with the work environment and the rules established within it, it鈥檚 essential to take into account the behavior of its employees to determine if they are in accordance with the goals of the company鈥
