Your employees are your brand. They have the power to move your organization forward by embodying your values through their interactions with your customers and each other.
What Leading Organizations Have In Common
Leading organizations large and small have one thing in common – they have a strong brand culture. One that’s rooted in the heart of the organization and radiates outward as a natural set of actions based on a common spirit and worldview. This brand culture will not only unite employees in a common purpose and vision, it will also attract consumers and engage them in a deep and meaningful relationship that increases their passion and loyalty.
Importance Of Engaging Employees
Fostering these customer relationships starts when you engage your employees. Which requires their belief in, and alignment around, their organization’s brand culture. The result is everyone unified and pulling together in the same direction and for the same reasons.
Whether on the front-line with customers or internally with each other, if you inform and inspire your employees they can translate your company (brand) values into actions. Culture provides the glue that creates a sense of shared purpose and trust. And it’s the one thing about a business that rivals can’t copy.
As Lou Gerstner, former chairman and CEO of IBM, said, “culture isn’t just one aspect of the game, it is the game.”
