The per­fect mar­riage

In an in­ter­view in these col­umns, Michael Lee Stal­lard had spo­ken about the im­por­tance of a con­nec­tion cul­ture in ad­dress­ing six spe­cific hu­man needs in the work con­text: re­spect, recog­ni­tion, be­long­ing, au­ton­omy, per­sonal growth, and mean­ing. This, he says, is dras­ti­cally dif­fer­ent from a cul­ture of con­trol where in­di­vid­u­als with power, con­trol, and sta­tus rule over the rest. To en­sure pro­duc­tiv­ity and growth, make sure to cre­ate an en­er­giz­ing en­vi­ron­ment wherein em­ploy­ees feel val­ued.

The con­cept of cor­po­rate cul­ture has changed sig­nif­i­cantly over the years. To­day, most com­pa­nies rec­og­nize that while the work that is done is ex­tremely im­por­tant, it is equally im­por­tant to build an im­age that is eth­i­cal, fair, and em­ployee-friendly by in­tro­duc­ing de­lib­er­ate steps in its work cul­ture. They are con­sciously try­ing to carve out their own cul­ture and shape their in­di­vid­ual iden­tity that would im­prove over­all per­for­mance and steer their com­pa­nies to­wards growth.

A ma­jor part of this iden­tity is de­pen­dent on the peo­ple that are em­ployed as well as the do­main of the in­dus­try. Com­pa­nies now rec­og­nize that hu­man tal­ent needs to be the best fit not only in terms of their ex­per­tise and aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tions, but also with re­gard to their per­son­al­i­ties. How­ever, there ob­vi­ously are mul­ti­ple
