Culture in itself is the values in which an organization holds true and uses to guide decisions – both large and small. These values shape the organization, and drive the organization forward. To me, a culture that is open, welcoming and encouraging is one that will retain its workforce. And by ‘open, welcoming and encouraging,’ I’m not talking about fluffy feel-good things. I’m talking about a culture that recognizes that each of its members have something to contribute, and those contributions are accepted with open arms and encouraged to grow.
