The Culture Chat Podcast: Bringing Organizational Values to Life

In this episode, we chat with Sanja Licina, Ph.D., Future of Organizations at Globant, about the challenges organizations face in bringing their values to life. How do companies that are crystal clear on what they value make sure they back it up with authentic context, color and identity? How do they weave that identity into the fabric of culture so that it reinforces and clarifies what's truly valued at every turn? Sanja has built a career around helping organizations create cultures that do that exactly - and she shares her experiences with us. Listen to (and/or download) this episode to learn more.

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!​

It can be at the center of the workforce operating systems fueling a more meaningful employee experience; yet has the distinct reputation as being nothing more than a soul-crusing expereince. It doesn't have to be that way.

I was an HR Exec for 20 years. So I know this conundrum all too well. We’ve been conducting employee engagement surveys for decades; we’ve been conditioned to do so. And while the effort is well-intended, it increasingly falls short.

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.
