  • Hello, everyone. Today, our topic is about the company culture.

  • And we will talk about it mainly from three aspects.

  • The first one, also the basic one -- what is it?

  • Company Culture is the shared values and practices of the company's employees.

  • It is the personality of a company. It defines the environment in which employees work.

  • Company culture includes a variety of elements, the first-- work environment,

  • I guess that is the first one we could think about.

  • And the rest five elements include company mission, value, ethics, expectations, and goals.

  • Here we take Nestle as an example.

  • Nestle is the example of an organization with a clear company culture.

  • We are able to find everything about it’s company culture from it’s website.

  • Such as , the mission: food food, good life.

  • The goal: to be a leading nutrition, health and wellness company.

  • Besides, it’s easy to have a general understanding of it’s history.

  • To know what achievements it has reached during the 150 years.

  • Such as more than 2000 brands worldwide, or around 335,000 employees.

  • The next part, why is it important.

  • Three angles are provides for us to analyze it.

  • First,employees. Employees are more likely to enjoy their time and behave better when they fit in with the company culture.

  • Second,employers. Employers can improve productivity and employee retention through a strong office culture.

  • And the last one, companies themselves. Companies with an adaptive culture that is aligned to their business goals routinely outperform their competitors.

  • And ,as a graduate who is seeking for a job.

  • Interview is essential.

  • While the company culture is an inevitable part of the interview.

  • So here are five tips to help job-hunters learn bout a company’s culture.

  • Check out the company website.

  • In particular, look at the company’s “About Uspage.

  • This will often have a description of the company’s mission and values.

  • Do some research.

  • Beyond looking at the company website, you can also check out a number of online resources that provide details on company culture.

  • Ask around.

  • If you know someone who works for a company youre interested in, ask to set up an informational interview where you can learn more about the company.

  • Ask the right interview questions.

  • The employer will likely ask you questions to assess whether you’d fit into the company culture.

  • However, you can ask questions too. Simply asking, “How would you describe your company’s culture?” is a straightforward way to learn about the work environment.

  • You might also ask about particular elements of the company that are important to you,

  • such as the amount of independent work vs. teamwork, or the day-to-day schedule of an employee.

  • The last is, to shadow someone. If you are offered the job, and are still unsure of the company’s culture, ask if you can shadow someone in the department for a day, or a few hours.

  • This will be a useful way to see the office dynamics in play, and to ask any remaining questions.

  • In the end,I’ve got three questions for you.

  • If you are going to participate in a interview, and you meet these questions, think seriously about what you are going to answer them.

  • Remember, Before you start to formulate an answer for interview questions about the company culture ,

  • take the time to brainstorm about the company culture as a whole, and what it means to you.

  • So, the first one is, "Do you prefer to work independently or on a team?"

  • The second, "what is the ideal company culture for you to work in?"

  • The last one, "Tell me about yourself."

  • Seems like very simple. But to answer this question, don't share a list of your most compelling qualifications for the job at hand.

  • But try to start out by sharing some personal interests., which don't directly relate to your work.

  • Then you can transition to sharing some key professional skills that would help you to add value if you were hired for your target job.

  • Ultimately, you will want to share several other strengths before the interview is over.

  • However, be careful not to overwhelm the interviewer with too much information.

  • So, that’s what I ‘d like to share with you about the company culture. Thanking for your attention.
