Small Business Month – HR Network Event: Workplace Culture

As a part of small business month, we have partnered with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and WSIB to host an HR Network event, open to all businesses.

Workplace Culture: What It Is, Why It Matters, and How to Define It

“Culture is the character and personality of your organization. It’s what makes your business unique and is the sum of its values, traditions, beliefs, interactions, behaviours, and attitudes.

Positive workplace culture attracts talent, drives engagement, impacts happiness and satisfaction, and affects performance. The personality of your business is influenced by everything. Leadership, management, workplace practices, policies, people, and more impact culture significantly.

The biggest mistake organizations make is letting their workplace culture form naturally without first defining what they want it to be”.
