Introduction to the course

This Creating a Positive Work Culture in Organisations training course is designed to provide leaders and mangers with the skills and insights they need to create a positive work culture in their organisations. Participants will learn about the crucial importance of workplace culture, as well as the impact of culture on their organisation’s ability to compete effectively in today’s challenging market environments.

Work culture - it is the shared values, beliefs and behaviours that can propel organisations towards success - or hold them back and sabotage their progress. Time and again, research tells us that the quality of an organisation’s culture plays a critical role when it comes to attracting the most talented people into the organisation – and it is a key driver of employee engagement and team productivity.
