Workplace Cultural Fit Adaptation and The Competitive Advantage

Associate (Former Employee)
Jersey City, NJ

ProsGlobalisation has made this worldwide organization into a more collaborative and diverse, informed workforce that seeks to deploy a framework that goes beyond normal efforts to help accomodate, assimilate, and accelerate any new hires, internally or externally. Recently, the relationships between people and systems were managed through a close coupled environment allowing the individual employee the capacity to work at the specific task in which they specialize but there was always the growing potential to shifting to a loose-coupled environment to allow the possibility of progressive employee improvement and contribution beyond internal agility and individual flexibility in the workplace.

ConsConversely, the competition among wealth management businesses and increased regulatory climate has forced this large organization to seek a cultural fit with its employees that defines how they feel about the organization's attitude as a whole and how they communicate with each other. A more peripheral vision and alignment of key stakeholders( read employees) as well as the pay and reward mechanisms of the current culture can and should nurture the fundamental changes needed to effect a change that will involve employee self-accountability and commitment to succeed.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more strategic towards the nurturing and alignment of employees' interest with that of the organization.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
