Corporate Culture: Can HR Influence?

A company’s culture is a collection of instinctive repetitive habits and emotional responses that show a collection of self-sustaining patterns of thought, belief system, behavior and feelings that determine the way we execute tasks in an organization.


Culture is an emotional energizer that motives the employees to advance the strategic operational priorities of their company; culture can also lead to undermining long term success if it becomes a drag on productivity and emotional commitment that is why its important to strike a balance and truly understand the needs and limitations of employees.

If the concentration is shifted to changing the behaviors because they are more tangible and measurable a behavior pattern can be established, which when applied to a significant number of people can positively impact and influence the growth and productivity that in turn will enhance the business performance in the long run.


Every human organization creates a unique culture of its own, from a small family business operating from their hometown to a large global corporation spanning cultures in different timeline zones, each culture has its own identity. Corporate culture has become more important than ever in an organization. Employees expect corporate culture to help guide them in their jobs and give them a sense of purpose and encourage competition.


Organizations are cohesive organisms which learns to adapt or find better ways to create a responsive environment to increase the productive capacity of the business which depends on.

  • Capital resources

  • Physical resources

  • Human resources

The purpose of HR is to bring enhancement to the performance of the people involved, which will ultimately lead to the improvement of the organization. Successful HR professionals know that to win in the current competitive marketplace they must learn how to attract, develop and retain talented and productive individuals. The roles of HR include holding the privilege of taking care of thousands of employees working for the organization as they take care of their jobs.


Culture is a perfect dilemma in HR, because it’s all about teaching the employees how to bring the best out in them and the best way to do that is through culture by creating an environment that makes them highly driven to deliver. This can be done by understanding the competencies and the deficiencies of the employees using HR and culture to derive performance.

As an HR manager it is your key role to ensure that the employees live the culture of the organization, which means that it is your responsibility how the employees orient themselves to the culture of an organization. If the culture is properly defined every individual will understand of what the culture means, proper time, energy and resources need to be applied to teach the culture of an organization to elevate the principle of what the organization truly stands for.

Rewarding the employees that follow the culture, behavior and values of an organization will set a positive example for the rest to follow, and in the long run this will motivate them to strengthen to the culture of the organization.
