Some of the types of work cultures
- Employee Focused Culture:
This corporate environment is very much focused on putting the team first. The priority is always how well an individual will match the culture, this is more important than the experience the individual can bring. These organisations strive to make their employees happy in their work by organising team building exercises and socialising events. Organisations will help their employees to be the best they can through offering flexible working to fit around family and other commitments.
- Innovative Corporate Culture:
These businesses are market leaders and are out to make a name for themselves by pushing boundaries. They only look to hire the very best employees who can work in challenging fast paced environments. Employees needs to be confident as these businesses have high expectations, however being part of a market leading business motivates employees who are out to show the world what they have to offer.
- Flat level Corporate Culture:
This is usually common among new businesses which are in the early stages of growth. This is where all employees will work together with a common shared goal, irrespective of position or role. Everyone will get involved to ensure the success of the service/product, and will go above and beyond to exceed customer expectation which they need for company growth and expansion.
- Traditional Corporate Culture
These organisations are structured is a very traditional / formal way, where there are top level CEO’s and directors who are in charge of the majority of decision making. There will usually be several departments, focusing on different aspects of the business without much integration between them. These companies will usually be much focused on statistics and monitoring growth to maintain profitability above all else. Usually they are very opposed to any decisions which involve an element of risk taking even if great rewards could be reaped.
- Evolving Culture
This is an organisation where there is constant change and development. It is common for changes to be made without notice such as business collaborations and buy-outs. Employees which can adapt to change and thrive in fast paced environments suit this culture best. Evolving cultures offer lots of opportunity for young, eager individuals who can see the opportunities which lie with an organisation who is ever adapting and changing to current market trends.
