The Culture Chat Podcast: Culture is Easier Said Than Done

In this episode, we chat with Dawn Hrdlica-Burke, Advisor / Speaker / WriterDawn Burke HR about why it is so easy to talk about culture yet so difficult to actually do something about it and stay committed and focused on it. Dawn and Charlie discuss how to take corporate culture to the next level while maintaining a standard of excellence through periods of growth. How we work has a lot to do with culture, but assuming you are doing the right things already and relying on organic growth simply won't translate. You need to stay intentional, actions must speak louder than words and Dawn and Charlie will explain what that means in this episode of the Culture Chat Podcast.

"Workplace culture" is admittedly still a bit nebulous for many. In fact, that is one of the problems we set out to address at WorkXO: we must give workplace culture a common language, make it more accessible, and learn to quantify/qualify/understand it. Human Capital Management, in general, is something that requires a great deal of customization to fit the distinct needs of an organization. WorkXO, therefore, feels like we owe it to our audience - and to the community - to share the diversity of thought on these important topics. The following is just one perspective - from an outside, non-WorkXO entity. And we're ok with that. In fact, we're cool with it. But it doesn't necessarily mean we agree with it entirely. Enjoy!

The landscape has shifted from looking for that long-term, sustainable competitive advantage to managing more of a portfolio of “transient advantages,” moving from one short-lived advantage to the next. This approach is not only exhausting; it cannot be sustained. What if an intentionally managed workplace culture could become your one true competitive advantage?  We think it can be.

The term "workplace culture" is admittedly still a bit nebulous. In fact, that is one of the problems we set out to address at WorkXO: we must give "workplace culture" a common language, make it more accessible, and learn to quantify/qualify/understand it. That said, there is still a ton of room for interpretation and perspective on this subject. And we feel like we owe it to our audience - and to the community - to share the diversity of thought on this important topic. The following is just one perspective - from an outside, non-WorkXO entity. And we're ok with that. In fact, we're cool with it. But it doesn't necessarily mean we agree with it entirely. Enjoy!

We can already hear the grumbles. “Yeah, but we’re not Zappos and we’re not Netflix.” This is true, and, for the record we are not recommending that you try to become them...because you cannot. You just can’t copy a culture. You have to create it.

In each edition of our Culture Code eBook series we'll take a deeper dive into one of the culture markers our Workplace Genome culture management platform measures, analyzes, and activates. The first edition focuses on Agility. Partially because it's one of those things in the workplace that we really stink at it; but mostly because it's crucial to driving growth.

When it comes to company culture, there is a lot of noise and cliché around what it really constitutes. Does culture really eat strategy for breakfast? Do people really leave the culture and not the company? Is your culture your most valuable competitive asset?
