Your Culture Creates Organizational Culture
Some students think that they do not have much of a culture at their organization. The truth is that every organization has a culture! Your organizational culture can be related to the way that employees dress, the way that they communicate, or even how they decorate their work environment.
An organizational culture is often formed through the many different people that make up the company. These diverse traits may be your race, ethnicity, gender, age, nationality, religion, sexual orientation, ability, etc. Take some time to think about your own cultural background and how this can add to your work culture. Share these cultural pieces with us in this Discussion. Try to not focus on just one aspect of yourself, but try to utilize as many cultural elements as possible. Also, address why culture is important in communication. How does your culture affect your communication with others in the workplace?
