And now a word from your sponsor: As they say on TV: “Don’t try this at home.”
If you were to conduct an in-house survey of corporate culture in your organization, you would come up with a series of numbers. Some might be high, some might be low. But what would they actually mean? Can you discern any useful results out of these numbers? Not really – because you don’t have anything to compare them to.
Perhaps scores in one area, let’s say collaboration, are lower than in other areas. Does that indicate a problem or not? How can you tell? You can’t. That is, unless you have a set of global benchmarks to compare your data with. You need to see how your scores line up against general scores throughout the business world, or in a given nation.
