Our discussion this week focuses on culture; specifically the culture of the organization. Our authors define culture as a set of shared assumptions that determines how we act in the workplace (paraphrased from p. 283).
Let’s get comfortable describing our workplace in terms of culture.
In your initial post:
- Describe your current company’s culture. You are encouraged to do this using the three levels of organizational culture from our chapter reading. (If you’re not currently working, use your most recent position)
- Describe which type of culture exists using the competing values framework.
- Reflect on your responses – do you think you experience person-organization fit?
