Professional Development Training

Shaping your Organizational Culture

Course Code: AMS2090

Organizational Culture has become as important for prospective employees as compensation and benefits packages. Recruiting and hiring for “cultural fit” has taken on an equally important deciding factor for HR as experience and technical acumen. In short, your culture can be a key differentiator for your organization in attracting, hiring and retaining top talent. How can you ensure that your culture is connecting with your people—both your current employees and those you’re hoping to attract? How can you create and continually develop your culture?  This program will provide you with the tools and techniques to evaluate the current state of your organization’s culture, understand culture within the context of your industry and the larger business environment and formulate adjustments in attitudes and values where necessary.
