Future Sight with Capgemini Invent

What challenges do companies face when looking to change their old practices? What is the way forward for organisations who want to develop an effective culture?

Show Notes

Traditionally, company cultures have always been the domain of HR, or an afterthought to success involving ping pong tables and staff bonus packages. For many, the concept of changing an entire organisation’s way of doing things seemed daunting, a task that fell well behind hitting targets and ensuring the basic welfare of staff. However, following the pandemic and new approaches to the work life balance, things have truly started to shift. People are realising the vital importance of creating a dynamic and effective company culture which fosters productivity, welfare and growth.

In this episode of Future Sight, host Claudia Crummenerl speaks to Melissa Daimler, whose new book ReCulturing, examines the challenges that companies face when looking to change their old practices, and posits a new way forward for organisations to develop an effective culture.

This week's guest:
