Changing the Culture of the Company
Changing the culture of an organization is crucial, but it’s something that is not done overnight. Can be to do with changing how people work. There are many projects that foster collaboration, and this means that when you start to alter the culture of a company and become more inclusive, this means there will be some kickbacks, but this will help to weed out the less forward-thinking employees.
