Environment and Corporate Culture in SME’s

 

By LearnCorp Training Pty Ltd

 

The culture of a business represents the beliefs system of that firm and how these are manifested in employee behaviours, product designs and stakeholder management including the methods of training and the type of learning environment.

 

The culture of a firm covers several significant areas including:

Team Cohesion, Customer Service Culture, Ethics in Business, Corporate social responsibility

 

This edition’s short note is on Team Cohesion.

 

Team Cohesion

 

Team members can create a synergistic output at work when the team is cohesive. Negative team sentiment, on the other hand, can create productivity declines, challenges and ultimately a loss of value.

 

Team members are varied in their skill sets and capabilities. The role of management is to preserve and enhance the value of each team member through understanding their areas of priority and abilities. The table below identifies several personality types in a common business environment. Good teams work well by using the strengths of each team member.
