Workplace Culture Not Enforced

Australian businesses are disconnected from their workplace culture goals. According to a Human Synergists report, the culture that 95 percent of businesses want to achieve is greatly different from what employees actually experience.   

“Despite all the talk about managing Gen Y and culture being on the agenda in most boardrooms, we are still seeing a trend where the majority of organisations do not live their values,” says Quentin Jones, Human Synergistics Australian director. “We continually see through our research that leaders do not practice what they preach and this results in the cultural disconnect; the actual culture is characterised by defensive behaviours rather than the constructive behaviours that our research tells us that workers want.”“This means that staff are often disenfranchised and less likely to stay with an organisation.”
