What's The Culture In Your Organisation?
Strong leadership is key to building any organisation’s culture. However, central to keeping the momentum of maintaining and improving this culture are its people. While a leader may believe their culture is one to be proud of, if the people don’t believe it will they really embrace it?

As you’ve probably guessed, today’s #InsightThursday feature will focus on company culture. How do you build one? How do you ensure it’s a culture that everyone can be proud of? Can you do this while also keeping employees engaged? What are the negative tell-tale signs you should look out for?
