How would you describe your organization? What is your company’s culture? An organization’s culture is defined as the set of shared meanings and values held by a set of members in an organization that distinguish the organization from other organizations. This shared identity is what will help employees understand the company's values and internalize them to make them their own. The culture can be manifested in two ways within an organization: a dominant culture or a subculture. A dominant culture is the core values shared by most of its members. The dominant culture is also the public face of the organization, what they are known for. By contrast, a subculture within an organization shares different ideas from the dominant culture.
