Many leaders today are talking about company culture as if it’s akin to capturing a unicorn. It carries a romantic and mythological appeal that makes it an irresistible topic of conversation, but they still haven’t fully figured out how to effectively shape it to drive the right behaviors in their organizations.

Why aren’t more organizations able to embrace safety culture in a meaningful and sustainable way?   Here are three misconceptions that are keeping organizations from truly embracing safety into their culture.
All too often, organizations espouse the value of safety by pasting the walls with posters and other artifacts like these, saying safety is one of the organization’s core values while meeting only the minimum requirements for safety awareness, training and protective equipment required by law. Unfortunately, the critical importance of safety isn’t taken seriously until there’s a serious accident or incident in the workplace.

In today’s hyper-connected world, employees are making their voices heard: They want to join organizations that stand for something. They want to align themselves with a corporate culture that fits their own beliefs and values. A place where they can bring their best selves and contribute in ways that make a difference. So, before you dive headfirst into the process of valiantly changing your culture single-handedly, take a step back and realize that your employees may want to be a part of the process.
If your current culture is preventing your employees from doing their best work, that culture needs to change. Here are 5 things to consider, before you get started.

When it comes to measuring bottom-line performance metrics like profitability, sales growth and market share as they relate to organizational culture, many thought leaders and CEO's alike have yet to connect the dots between fact and fiction.

Most entrepreneurs don’t assemble the right team on the first try. And who can blame them? Between finalizing ad campaigns and analyzing market trends, hiring seems like another to-do in an overflowing inbox.
But startups need solid employees in that initial growth period more than at any other time. If you don’t know where to look, start with some of the most experienced, hardworking, and versatile employees on the market: veterans.
Startups need a strong team and veterans are some of the most experienced, hardworking, and versatile employees on the market.
