Who owns the culture in your organization?
Marketing? The CEO? The engineers? The guys in the mail room?
In most cases, it’s just left to chance.
HR can only stay relevant if culture is a cornerstone of your HR practice.
The bigger question: Who is qualified to own it? Who really understands it?
Why does it even matter?
It matters for recruitment, retention, engagement, efficiency, customer satisfaction and about every other aspect of the organization you can think of.
Culture touches every person in everything they do, and therefore is critical to the success of the organization.
In order to keep and grow their place at the table, HR must learn to execute culture.
In many companies, it will be the most difficult job in the business.
But that’s what makes it so damn interesting…
