Organizational Culture or Corporate Culture in Govt and Private Corporations

You feel different when you go to various offices for your purposes and tasks. It can be government offices or private banks you visit. Why do you feel differently?

What is Organizational Culture?

The most basic definition of an organization's culture is “the way things are done around here” By Deal and Kennedy.

The workplace is governed by a number of formal and unwritten norms. Every business, like most people, has its own distinct personality.

Organizational culture is a potent factor that influences the behavior of group members despite being invisible. The expectations, experiences, philosophy, and values that hold an organization together are reflected in its self-image, inner workings, interactions with the outside world, and future expectations. It is built on common attitudes, beliefs, conventions, and written and unwritten regulations that have evolved over time and are regarded as valid.

Organizational culture (corporate or office culture) refers to how employees interact with the world both inside and outside their workplace. It is inferred and deduced from its employees' characteristics and qualities. Dress codes and office layouts are simply the tips of the iceberg when it comes to workplace culture.

Culture in Public and Private Corporations  

Bangladesh has two distinct forms of office culture: a/ the relaxed government workplace and b/ the fast-paced private sector one. However, in recent years, we've seen the growth of an employee-friendly corporate culture, primarily in Silicon Valley-inspired start-ups. Individualistic and hierarchical organizational structures, seen in major private firms are being replaced by these tendencies.

Companies like Apple, Google, and Netflix have proved that strong growth rates and employee-friendly company culture can coexist since the digital boom.
