Abstract: The definition of “corporate culture” varies depending on who you ask. As behavioral scientists, we look at corporate culture through the lens of our analytic goals – the prediction and influence of behavior toward better working for the organization. “Culture” denotes the totality of setting factors that occasion the behavior of any given person within the company. Culture connotes complexity, a major source of which comes from the social interactions among the employees and between the employees and the organizational environment. When we apply behavioral principles toward the design of culture, we embrace the complexity inherent in language. We recognize that symbols within our environment may influence our interpretation of verbal rules and our daily experiences at work.
In healthcare, employee burnout is a constant risk as high levels of care and challenging client interactions. We’ll discuss how organizations may use art and other media to increase the saliency of values and reduce the likelihood of staff burnout. In this presentation, we will give you the tools to begin a culture design project in your agency to help create a more burnout resistant workforce.
