Why is corporate culture so important?

Before we come to the success factors for effective culture development, it is first important to understand the significance of corporate culture in everyday organizational life.

Corporate culture exerts a decisive influence on the overall coordination of behavior in an organization. It influences decisions, motivation, and cohesion in the workforce as well as its performance and can be the decisive factor when it comes to the success of innovations, strategic initiatives, or major change processes.

The perceived corporate culture plays an important role not only within the organization but also in recruiting: When choosing an employer, applicants are paying increasing attention to whether they can identify with the company’s culture.

A modern corporate culture that matches the strategic goals not only promotes the achievement of these very goals but also improves the organization’s ability to innovate and adapt. It provides orientation and links implicitly existing basic assumptions and expectations with what is actually lived on a day-to-day basis. It also creates a more pleasant working environment and has a positive effect on finding and retaining suitable employees.

If there are changes in the strategic orientation or if a change process is imminent, the corporate culture must also be taken into account.

If market conditions change, companies not only need to realign their strategy – their very own corporate culture must also accompany the change. This is the only way to ensure that change processes within the company are supported by the entire workforce and lead to success.

Corporate culture can hinder change processes. But the good news is that corporate culture can also promote change in a positive sense.
