6 Straightforward Ways to Improve Your Company Culture

Company culture is, in short, “how the sausage gets made.” It’s the attitudes, relationship dynamics, and overall mindset of people within a company.

Company culture also really matters. A survey of almost 2,000 North American CEOs and CFOs (and interviews with 16 people in these positions) conducted by Columbia Business School and Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business showed that:
