2/22(Sat) Company culture / Customer service (Host:Winston)

文章李昰翰 » 週日 2月 09, 2020 11:21 am

Dear Yoyoers,
It’s my honor to be the host for the meeting on Feb.22, 20 for which we’ll talk two topics about company culture and customer service together.
For the theme on company culture, let’s think about why it is so essential for a company. How will you depict the corporate culture looks like? Will there be any association for company culture articulating to employees’ behavior? What’s the magic for its functions anyway? If extending to a broader conception, can you identify the difference on the conception among culture, social culture, company culture, and “culture level on individuals or groups”?
For the second topic on customer service, have you experienced any unforgettable service from an excellent company or organization? Life is a process of “give” and “given”; the former is a giver while the later is a taker. We are providing services to the public no matter directly or indirectly, and also we’ll gain service from surrounding people engaged with a diversity of different form of business or services. Based on different role playing, how will you think about the client service if you were the boss, CEO, employees, clients based on different stance and viewpoints? Let’s light up the spark to the ideas.

Company culture manifests itself in the forms of team cultures, office atmosphere and environment, company bureaucracy, intra-team and inter-team relationships, and in the ways employees make their everyday business decisions. Here I would like to share some personal observations that I deem as a show of corporate culture.

There has been teams that are notoriously known to be defensive or exclusive, while in contrast some others are rather cooperative and supportive. The sharp differences are largely decided by whether a leader put his or his team’s own interests over company success.

The company that I am with encourages people managers to hold a “coach” mindset rather than a “judge” mindset when making performance feedback. That guidance sets the tone for the management when direct reports do not measure up to their expectations.

I once landed a job in Taiwan branch of an American tech giant. More often than not when interacting with teams in headquarter, information was not open to us, treating us like thefts of technology. That was frustrating and significantly impacted our productivity and pace to keep up with market changes. The company ended up reaping what they sowed and has become marginalized in an increasingly competitive market that they used to dominate.

Thank you Kooper for your sharing to what your observation to the company culture you experienced.
A healthy company culture extracts the essence of the core value of a company, and mindsets the entire company members to behave in a way coherently and consistently as a result no mater influence over internal interaction among “company families” or external relationship to customers, suppliers, shareholders, and society. A positive company culture usually complies with moral principle also. In case of the factional culture of a company surpasses the company cultural values as sort of "company political means" which will probably bring repercussion as possible damages to the consolidation of the company. For sure, such negative “company culture” will not be recognized by the company members, and it is not in compliance with moral principle and the mainstream value of a society culture.
Choosing right persons to get on the bus ought to be one of the key answers. Once a healthy company culture and organization climate cultivated, it’ll bring enormous of intangible strength to binding the behaviors and attitude of the company families in pursuit of company values, strategy, and objectives, and grow up the organization on long-term basis. It actually fill-up the gaps for what SOP can’t regulate and bind every trial behavior of the employees; without consensus infused with corporate culture, SOP is only words functioning in a limited way comparatively due to reluctance on mindset. A healthy corporate culture ought to function of driving out SOP at less importance, and lead the corporate members enjoy themselves at work for the recognition to the organizational culture tied with entire members’ values and benefits fundamentally.
