Most organizations, while put their organizational values and behaviors into statements, don’t actually incorporate them in everyday interactions, operations, and processes.
Thereby failing to convert the written into an actively demonstrated aspect of their employee population.
And that becomes the root of many severe issues at the organization
As your organization grows in size, it becomes increasingly important for you to create and sustain a cohesive work environment.
One with a singular value system driving positive interactions, consistent performance, and united behavior.
Having drastic differences in a workplace with misaligned values and contradictory beliefs can lead to detachment with the work, lower motivation, and lack of camaraderie.
Which eventually results in reduced performance and an increase in attrition rates.
Making it crucial to reinforce the values of your organization and effectively translate them into efficient and effective team behavior.
Consider some of these situations:
Someone takes credit for your great idea.
Someone asks you to stay back at work but you have personal obligations.
You have to give bad feedback to someone you’re close with.
You need to escalate a serious issue.
The above are just a few examples of things that can happen to anyone at work. And while these may look straightforward to some, to the majority, they are far more difficult and stressful to handle.
As a result, without a commonly accepted and showcased value system to guide their behavior, many people end up evading the main issue, sugarcoating it, or sweeping it under the rug. Over time, this behavior dilutes the efficiency and effectiveness of their role and impacts the culture of the organization.
I guess this is the reason organisations spend immense amount of time hiring the right candidate for their top roles. Because these values have to flow from top to bottom and then dissolve into the organisation as a whole.
