In this podcast interview, Dr. Troy discusses ways organizations can create a healthy working environment through culture, vision, alignment, camaraderie, and healthy workplace cultures. Almost every company has a culture problem. One of the ways to avoid significant cultural challenges is hiring people who share the company’s values. Although culture evolves through time, you can set the groundwork and establish the parameters and expectations upfront.
For Dr. Troy, one of the things that organizations should look at when hiring is behavior and conduct. Understanding the behavior of employees can help minimize cultural problems. If you allow individuals to be harmful in the work environment, then the root of the culture problem is you and not the environment itself. Therefore, it’s crucial to actively observe behaviors, training, support, and communication at your company.
