Before diving into two sides of corporate culture let me tell you a story which I heard from one of my colleagues who was working with for an over a year. She was one of the most energetic people in the team one day I asked her why she left her previous job as the company was bigger compared than our current company, she told me a story what exactly went wrong with her company. She had taken one year leave of absence as she was pregnant and when she had returned she noticed that there was a huge change in the culture compared to when she left.
The energy was darker certain big changes happened one of the founders had left and one of the most profitable product lines was killed due to some internal issues. The team was openly talking about job hunting and most people would just work for the sake of working.When it comes to the corporate culture you can very well be confused about different factors that impact but some of the most sociable factors tend to make a major difference here are some of them
Recently, I got a message over LinkedIn that one of the potential candidates had left without an interview and was very angry. I asked him why wasn’t the interview taken the later on explained that the HR had made him sit for an hour outside and then was told that a call will be given once the system was free but nor a call was given the candidate waited for Day outside our office. This happens during many interview sessions, your interview process represents your company.
This is one of the biggest reasons many good candidates usually leave your company. They might not come and directly say to your face but you can identify once you see a group of employee. Keeping the office environment upbeat and positive is an important cultural value.
Company culture is always way different compared to the company perks. Never combine both of them. Free food and easy leave policy both fall in a different category and never compare both of them.
