Those among us who are familiar with using gadgets and equipment both at home and office, would also be familiar with the Data Sheet that accompanies these devices. The data sheet mentions under what environmental or operating conditions, the device’s performance will be reliable.
Similar to the operating conditions for an electronic device, every organisation should also provide a clear framework that will guide the actions of its employees. The behavioural expectation of the organisation, on how its employees interact and work, is called the Culture of the organisation.
When employees share the beliefs and goals of the organisation and thus align to its culture, it will improve relationships and employee happiness; reduce attrition; and improve the overall competitiveness of the organisation.
