What is Company Culture? Connecting with History and Community

The history of a nation is an accumulation of the aspects which make up the culture of that nation and country. Social co-operation and collaboration are two striking topics when we think about the recent Turkish history. This makes up one of the most important ingredients of company culture in Turkey.

Relation Between the Company Culture, History and Culture

History of a nation is also an amalgam of incidents and past experiences which make up the culture of the country. The company culture is created with an understanding of solidarity and co-operation. It’s perfectly understandable for companies and other institutions to ‘have the mark’ of the culture and the historic traits of the society. They reflect the social and cultural ways the community they are in. That doesn’t mean to say that all companies or establishments in a society are somewhat the same, on the contrary, they can be different from each other just like the sub-cultures in a society. That’s why every business has its own company culture and the bond between the company culture and the employees differ from one company to another. When employees adopt the company values, they also develop a bond between themselves and the company which shows that there is a company culture. This is exactly why it’s important to strengthen the ties between the employees and the company. In order to make this happen, certain amount of effort is necessary. It’s important to organize activities which help bolstering the bond and company values. When employees adopt the company values, a major step is taken towards success.

Creating Company Culture

One of the most important components of an established company is its company culture. The expertise, working hours, business opportunities and the market value are the aspects following company culture. Unless there is an environment where common values are shared and adopted, being successful is wishful thinking. However, when the company values are fully adopted by all employees and are being maintained while doing business, it’s almost guaranteed the company will be successful. Company culture, which seems to have utter importance can be created by following certain steps. Below are some of the main topics to consider.

  • Identifying the final goals of the company and preparing a road-map for action.
  • Knowing and understanding the background and establishment history of the company. Being loyal to its core values and making sure that they are sustained.
  • On the way to success, caring for the rights of the employees as well as caring for profitability.
  • Knowing and understanding that all the gains are the result of the work of employees. Rewarding success when necessary and remembering to have faith in teamwork.
  • Owning up to the responsibilities when there is failure just like enjoying the fruits of successful endeavors.
  • Organizing and attending at activities to improve the employees and celebrating the products of efforts altogether.
  • Implementing orientation programs for new members joining the company so that they can harmonize with the company culture. Organizing activities to make sure each and every employee can build trust towards the company.

Examples of action briefly explained above or similar activities to serve the same purpose will make it easier to create a company culture. It’s important that the employees adopt the company culture for successful end results.

Impact of Historic Research on Company Culture

Historic research not only sheds light onto social subject matters but also shows us the structure of the society and how the sociological evolution of the society takes place. Social structure of the community is one of the most important components of strategies adopted by a company. Any historic research conducted to find out about the community serves like a guide for companies. Companies which can make good use of this kind of guidance will be more successful.
