Businesses are made up of individuals and the cultures they create.

In this engaging talk, Business Anthropologist, Jenean Merkel Perelstein shares how workplace culture is the number one driver of staff efficiency, productivity, and happiness.

Looking at your organization through the lens of an anthropologist you will learn:

  • How your unique workplace culture defines how stable and productive your workforce is
  • How to define what your current workplace culture is, who shapes it, and the influence it has on productivity
  • How culture helps you understand the crucial difference between developing policies and enculturating practices
  • Why it is important focus on workplace culture to limit absenteeism and employee turnover
  • Why workplace culture is your most powerful lever to a successful business strategy

Any time you have more than one person in an organization, you have a culture. Within that culture you need to know who is influencing that culture, who is following that culture, and what are the impacts of your culture on your mission and strategy.

We dig deep into what your workplace culture is and how to define it. We will talk about who, what, when and how your culture is influenced- both positively and negatively. We will explore how to adapt nimbly to change in a wide variety of situations. Focus on workplace culture helps organizations build trust and respect amongst your teams, build rapport with remote teams as well as with customers and clients. And it is the foundation for developing skills for dealing with difficult conversations, toxic workplace habits, and managing conflict between workers.

Your workplace culture will form even if you do not do it purposefully. Learn how attention to your workplace culture can ensure your organization improves its positivity, productivity, and profitability.
