28 Components of Constructing Effective Organizational Culture [Infographic]

Strong company culture is  more important than ever. It is no longer a “nice to have,” but rather a “must have” if a company is serious about attracting top talent. Developing a company culture not only engages employees but also evolves and adapts as your company grows is crucial to success.

In the infographic below, our friends at Alive with Ideas outline the essential components you need to consider in order to build effective organizational culture.
