Seminar

You already have a company culture, but is it harming or helping your organisation? Whether a business owner, employee or business advisor, the ideas presented will help you create a chosen company culture. Organisations have a culture, but is it by design or default? A company culture that is wrong for the business or not aligned to those of the employees means the business is not delivering to the level it could for the stakeholders. This diminished performance can manifest itself in many ways, high staff attrition, poor quality processes and products, low productivity etc… all leading to a reduced net profit. It all hits the bottom line. This seminar will introduce 7 ideas to transform a business.
