For change to succeed, it’s important to articulate a clear strategy. At a basic level, the business strategy enables a universal understanding of where the organisation is aiming to get to and the top line on how this might be achieved. If this is in place, it can act as a sense check when decisions are made and will also provide a steer when things don’t go according to plan.

How to ensure your company culture will support successful change

An organisation’s cultural DNA forms a core from which everything else flows (or should do).

They’re also far more likely to help keep things on track and raise any [...]

Organisations with strong and transparent cultures perform better

Having clearly-defined and communicated values helps companies attract and develop key talent Companies with strong cultures perform better, a study from Mercer has revealed. In research seen exclusively by HR magazine, Mercer analysed Glassdoor feedback from 75,000 current and former employees who were asked to rate their employer’s culture from one to five.

ALL WORK AND NO PLAY?

Jo Harley, Managing Director at Purple Cubed shares her view on work life balance. The article "All work and no play..." originally appeared in the Caterer  All work and no play leads to employees feeling stressed and anxious, with low productivity and high absence levels.
