Corporate Culture - the Topic Everyone Is Talking About

Written by Lucy Bielby on Apr 18, 2018

Corporate Culture - it seems to be the thing that everyone is talking about these days. But what is it, and why should we care?

Corporate culture is both essential for the functionality/ performance of teams within an organisation and the satisfaction of individual employees.

With experience working with brands such as Tesco Bank, Three and Sopra Steria to define their cultural engagement, John was an obvious choice to speak with on the matter.
