What is your company actively doing to reset or rethink its corporate culture?
During this pandemic-inspired economic downturn, some business execs are thinking, “We might as well take the time to think about our diversity situation.” They see it as an opportunity to think through how to reset the corporate culture – with attention to work/life balance, discrimination, and team dynamics as well as diversity in hiring. (The acceptance of working-from-home is almost a given, now, but that too is causing downstream effects, such as more patience with parenting needs.)
Or so I’m assuming.
I’m aiming to write a “here’s N things you can do to address company culture right now” article with the maybe-unspoken thought that when you’re ready to start hiring again, you can do a better job.
So I have two requests:
• Give me an example of what your company is actively doing differently, and their inspiration for doing so.
• For the practical “things you should do,” what should be on my list?
I'm interested in what businesses are actively doing -- and how to do them. Not a wishlist for what they ought to do! (I have plenty of fodder for that already.)
