A friend recently told me they were leaving their job. I asked why and they said it was the culture. The culture of the company had changed and they did not feel comfortable, excited, nor wanted to be there any longer. I thought it might be a good time to speak about why culture is important and how to find out about it before accepting a new job.
A January 2019 survey conducted by TopResume of 10,000 US professionals were asked what matters most to you when deciding which job to take next? The answer of company culture ranked second behind salary and bonus.
Every company, corporation, or organization has a culture. It consists of the prevailing beliefs and behaviors that guide workplace interactions. Why is culture important? Because if the company operates in a manner that uncomfortable for you, you will not want to stay and give it your all. How do you find out about the culture, here are several ways to do so.
So you can see that culture does matter and is important. Best of luck in finding and accepting your new position. If you need any assistance, please contact me at Nyda@TNBGroup.com or 828.246.4525.
