Helping You to Create the Future Of Work

Even before the onset of Covid-19, the world of work was changing at an ever-increasing pace. New business models, enabling technologies and agile ways of working are providing great opportunities but also significant challenges and risks for organizations, leaders and their employees. Employee expectations continue to shift and change with new work models and options available as never before. At the same time, other core aspects of leading a successful organization into the future remain quite constant and a focus on the here and now is also needed.

Proactively leading this dynamic work environment is one of the most important organizational, leadership and personal challenges today.

We Can Help You Create The Culture You Want To See

The impact of culture on organizational and employee performance, as well as on employer branding and reputation, is well known. In short, culture matters. However, while often quoted, culture is not always well understood or deliberately managed.

That is where WorkMatters can help!

Culture goes to the heart of how an organization thinks and behaves and how it really executes its strategy on a day to day basis. It reflects the assumptions, behaviours and risk/reward decisions that employees make consciously and sub-consciously and in what leaders actually recognise and value.
Sometimes culture is explicit and aligned with what is intended, but often it is not. What is clear is that leaders need to understand the culture they are creating and what is needed to reinforce and/or change it.

Given the increased pace of change in today’s world, culture has been increasingly recognised as a key organizational lever and necessary for defining and executing new norms of behaviour and ways of working.

To shape culture in a more deliberate way, leaders clearly need to understand and to agree on what those behavioural norms and working assumptions are today and what might need to change or be reinforced. They also need a plan for how this can be done and sustained over time, using tried and tested culture triggers that will reinforce and sustain new norms of working.

WorkMatters helps you clarify what your organizational culture is today and what it needs to be for you to succeed into the future. Using our culture change tool kit and roadmap, and supported by senior experts in the field, we also help you lead and deliver the culture change you want to see at all levels of the organization.
