Essex Business Podcast: The importance of company culture

by Kim Aaronricks

The pandemic brought about swift change and company culture was thrust firmly into the spotlight. Remote working, coupled with the accelerated adoption of digital tools, and individuals evaluating work/life balance all became the norm and business leaders were tasked with keeping everything on track.

In this episode of the Essex Business Podcast, we look at how a strong organisational culture, clear vision and robust company values can have a huge impact on everything from recruitment and retention, right through to the bottom line.
