Written assignment – culture change

Organizational culture begins with the purpose or a reason why the organization exists. This purpose lives or dies everyday through the diverse workforce. The culture created by the organization’s management also determines how the customers and employees view the company; however, if employees believe the organization doesn’t deliver on their promises to customers or to the brand, they quickly become demotivated and disengaged.

As an experienced business leader and recognized expert in the art of creating diverse cultures that motivate and include every individual within the environments in which the organization exists, you decide to submit a written journal article to Business Leaders Weekly about the benefits of creating a diverse and inclusive culture that increases motivation.

You must include all of the following in your 1–2-page magazine article.

  4. Describe 2 intrinsic and 2 extrinsic motivators that you think are most critical to employee satisfaction, motivation, and engagement.
  5. The benefits of providing an inclusive performance management review on motivation.
