Enrich Your Corporate DNA

58% of global employees don’t know their company vision.

Corporate culture encompasses the beliefs, behaviors, attitudes, and values of a company, but it can also refer to the interactions between employees and managers, and the way they are integrated within the organization.

You can create a powerful culture strategy and improved corporate culture by effectively collecting and using shared knowledge.

“Transparency and sharing of info are essential to create a context of trust and confidence”
– Willem Van Twembeke, CEO GDF Suez Energy International

 

Knowledge Management Key Considerations

01 Frame Responsibility

Accountability starts at the top. Managers should set an example to their teams by providing answers and sharing best practices. Leaders can put positive pressure on the rest of the organization by assigning responsibilities and encouraging employees to share knowledge with others.

02 Encourage Employee Contribution

Everyone has something to say, and everyone should be able to make his or her voice heard throughout the organization. Therefore, managers should allow employees of all levels the opportunity to make suggestions or share information. They will feel recognized and valued, and provide useful information the rest of the organization needs to see.

03 Allow Valuable Feedback Through Collective Channels

Social technologies can easily collect employee perceptions. A digital workplace provides executives and management instant access to real-time information on employee thoughts and viewpoints.

Knowledge Sharing Fosters Creativity and Innovation

Good management teams are receptive to new ideas and encourage employees to always search for innovation.

Organizations need to be innovative to stay in the game. If you want to be the best, you have to bet on new technologies that will foster creativity and innovation – the keys to corporate growth. An employee who shares their skills will improve strategy and the quality of work within teams.
