The dark side of company culture
Footdown was proud to be featured in Business Grapevine magazine recently with an article on the dark side of company culture. Here’s a little snippet of what we had to say…
Culture exists in every organisation, whether by design or default. That’s according to Matt Jenkins, Head of Consulting at management consultancy Footdown.
In an exclusive interview with Business Grapevine, Jenkins explained how organisational culture affects all departments, models daily practices, shapes workplace structures, defines internal or external relationships, and drives client engagement and market competitiveness.
“An increasing number of companies are seeing their culture as a valuable asset and are investing significant resources into creating a strong company culture, which leads to above average financial performance and increased competitiveness.
“At the other end of the spectrum, many companies are still fixated on growth or products rather than their underlying sustainability and culture, which is seen as a soft asset.”
