What is Company Culture?

Company culture is a term used to describe the internal environment that makes up the personality of an organisation. It encompasses both company values and behaviours and can often be implied, developing over time with each additional hire. Company culture has become a selling point for organisations who seek to differentiate themselves from the competition with some companies such as Google and Facebook known for their company cultures. There are several types of company culture according to the Harvard Business Review including Caring, Purpose, Learning, Enjoyment, Results, Authority, Safety and Order.
