The Influence of Societal Values on Organizational Culture at Company Level –the Romanian Case
AbstractThe present study aims to analyze the influence of societal values in modelling the organizational culture at company level. Studies conducted by different researchers highlighted the differences of perception between peoples’ values in their society in relation with the values of their colleagues of different nationalities. Finally, these values influence the importance that people grants to work, leisure, family and social status. The purpose of this paper is to draw the highlights of a new instrument for assessing the organizational culture at company level, a tool better adapted to the Romanian business and social environment, by measuring simultaneously the cultural values rooted from society values and behaviours and the cultural dimensions at company level. The assessment instrument has to be able to determine the employee’s societal values and the organizational culture of the company providing the link between those behaviours and attitudes which increase the social and economic performance of the organization and those that demotivate the Romanian employees.
