“Everything [in our strategy] our competitors could copy tomorrow. But they can’t copy the culture—and they know it.” Herb Kelleher, cofounder and executive chairman of Southwest Airlines (1971 – 2007) who led Southwest to the top of the domestic U.S. airline industry.
Research shows that the highest performing organizations in the world invest in their organizational culture. Companies that are consciously creating a strong corporate culture in a consistent and systematic manner over a period 15 years outperformed companies by 1649%. These companies gave 26% of their time and attention to culture, more than any other category. According to a 2013 study by Economics Intelligence Unit, 72% of strategy leaders recognize culture as a priority and one their top 4 strategic initiatives.
Do you have the right culture, systems and processes to support your strategic goals?
Results from a recent study in Singapore with 200 companies revealed 9 out of 10 strategic initiatives failed because leaders didn’t focus on changing people’s behaviours and how they worked together.
According to Gallup Research, in Europe the current level of employee engagement is between 13 – 18%. With a one million Euro HR budget, that’s 700,000 spent on disengagement, a lot of investment with no payback. You might have reports with graphs that show you are doing okay. You made a profit. You made your numbers. How many reports showed the gap between how you did and how you could have done? That gap is opportunity.
Organizational culture is all about HOW people work together.
Unless you understand how people work together, identify what is causing energy drain and loss of productivity, and explore the desired work environment, how can you expect different results? If Einstein was at your workplace, he might say “Leading, managing and behaving in the same old ways while expecting your employees to embrace new work habits and higher levels of collaboration is cultural insanity.”
