Beskrivelse
Indhold

A united culture is important for business success and for the wellbeing of the workforce. A toxic culture can manifest in various ways, from autocratic management that plays lip service to organisational values, through to industrial disputes. Engendering a culture that is united towards the achievements of organisational aims, living and breathing its values, requires time and effort but brings great rewards. The flavour of this ebook is to offer practical steps to achieve a united culture from the senior management team to all members of the workforce. It is based on the authors’ experiences and knowledge of Human Resources at a senior level and how organisations work.

About the Author

Jill Seymour & Bernard Nawrat

We both have extensive experience of working in human resources within the public sector. In the summer of 2015 we took early retirement. Between us we had worked over sixty years’ in local government across the gamut of HR activity; strategic planning, industrial relations, contract management, payroll, training, policy and casework to name a few. Time to make a change! Since then we have pursued a new adventure setting up Nawrat Seymour HR Service Ltd and undertaking consultancy work. Whilst organisations differ in culture and structures there are common issues that are faced. A happy and productive workforce are desirable goals. Are these achievable? Certainly, they are! But success needs to be planned and worked upon.
