Organizational culture has become a “hot” topic as leaders realize its impact on business, employee engagement, talent development, retention and more. In fact, being a good or poor cultural “fit” is among the top reasons employees give for leaving an organization – along with limited advancement opportunities and lack of rapport with an immediate supervisor. How well a candidate “fits” into an organization or team culture is also high on the list of qualities hiring managers look for when bringing on new employees.
The ability to plan for adversities that seem unlikely and improbable is a challenge for businesses and corporations. With any luck, a crisis management plan will be a documented, trained and ready to implement set of procedures that the corporation will never have to put into action until an anomalous event occurs that threatens operational continuity. However when it is needed, a crisis management plan is an essential tool, helping businesses return to operational norms as quickly as possible.
In order to remain competitive in business, organizations must not only excel at recruiting talented employees, but they must also continue to provide regular professional development for their team. It is important to foster behaviors and skills that will propel the organization forward.
