Beyond Statements - Action!
To develop a positive corporate culture, an organisation must have procedures and practices that reflect its values.
For example, an organisation that values collaboration must give employees the time and space to work together to achieve their goals. Whereas an organisation that values innovation and creativity must have practices that encourage employees to think outside the box and reward them for it!
By adopting policies and practices that reflect an organization's values, employees can embody them in their behaviour, contributing to a positive corporate culture.
Procedures and practises that put values into action should be dynamic. Feedback and ideas from employees, customers and stakeholders should drive procedural change. This ensures that a company's values remain evident in its actions.
The Role of Team Building Activities in Reinforcing Corporate Culture
Team building activities are an excellent way of exploring organisational values, whether defining them for the first time, reviewing them or communicating them to staff.
Moreover, Catalyst created a variety of team building activities to explore and reinforce corporate objectives and values, while also promoting networking and team bonding.
One of our most popular team building activities is a values-based Go Team GPS treasure hunt.
Go Team encourages employees to work collaboratively and learn more about the company's core values. In particular, the scavenger hunt is entirely customizable to align with the specific values of your organization.
For instance, if one of the company's core values is "innovation", Go Team can include tasks requiring participants to develop creative solutions. Conversely, if another value is "customer service," it can include tasks that prompt participants to develop procedures that boost positive customer relations.
The Big Picture is another team building activity that can help reinforce corporate values and Culture.
This activity fosters collaboration among employees, who work together towards a shared objective by creating a giant work of art. Furthermore, companies can customize the artwork to align with their values and objectives.
Through participating in The Big Picture, employees will see how their individual contributions can positively impact the final result of "the big picture".
Indeed, a Corporate Culture that reflects the goals and values of a Company is the cornerstone of a successful organisation.
