Culture is a Growing Trend for International Businesses

As data is increasingly used to modify indicators and improve performance in the business sector, it has become more apparent that strong organizational cultural is an important factor in growth. Deloitte’s recently published Global Human Capital Trends 2016 study, which is based on more than 7,000 survey responses, shows evidence to support this claim.

 

The report states that:

 

  1. Culture is a business issue, not merely an HR issue. The CEO and executive team should take responsibility for an organization’s culture, with HR supporting that responsibility through measurement, process, and infrastructure.
  2. While culture is widely viewed as important, it is still largely not well understood; many organizations find it difficult to measure and even more difficult to manage. Only 28 percent of survey respondents believe they understand their culture well, while only 19 percent believe they have the “right culture.”

 

Though the survey responses were sourced from more than 130 countries, nearly 82% of respondents agree that culture is a competitive advantage. However, only 28% of respondents are familiar with the cultural values of their company.

Is there a solution to the problem? It might be closer than you think: the arts.Engaging business employees through volunteerism and the arts is key to fostering a desirable work environment, increasing efficiency and morale, and doing good in the community as well as in the company. You can bridge the employee engagement gap by using the arts as a vehicle for driving positive change in a company’s culture. Here are 10 ways the arts can boost employee engagement in various facets of your company.

 

Across the country, today’s most innovative businesses are using the arts to help them meet some of their most difficult and vital objectives. Learn from these examples in Americans for the Arts’ essays that profile successful arts and business partnerships from across the nation, including one that focuses on using arts partnerships to inspire and engage employeesso that they are able to achieve their full potential.
