NEW YORK, New York — I just had a get together with a dozen of CEOs, where a question came up out of the blue: how much of your success is attributable to your company culture? Immediately someone answered: “At least 30%!” The person who answered was the CEO of a well known publicly traded web company with 750 employees, a $1.3B market cap and an astronomical growth rate. The 3rd generation owner of a family business asked: “But isn’t it a lot of blah, blah, blah? How do you get your employees to believe in it?”
Excellent questions and a perfect example of the dichotomy of opinions about this “soft” asset.
This is precisely what I would love the NetForum to discuss at our Culture meeting on 4/23/15 from 8 am to 10 am. To help us address these issue we are lucky to have Corey McAveeney, Culture Geek at CultureAmp. CultureAmp bills itself as the Survey Platform for People and Culture, and counts Etsy, Box and Square among many other clients.
