Institutional culture ( respond to my classmate)
Guided Response: Respond to my peer post, providing feedback on their positive characteristics. Discuss why at least one of their characteristics is relevant to you.
Consider your current institution (educational or work). Describe the environment and culture. Is this culture conducive to learning? Why or why not?
Institutional culture is about employees or educators having the same values or beliefs. The culture at my current work place is people first. They believe that if they take care of their people then their people will perform better. I work for a defense company, so it is important to have people performing to the best of their abilities. The environment is also one that promotes education and the well-being of its employees.
Now list five positive characteristics about your present institution and discuss how those characteristics support success.
The first positive characteristic I would list about my company is people first. They really do care about their employees, and they do this by offering paid disability is something should happen. They also have employees set up one on ones in case something is bothering the employee or the employee just wants to talk about how things are going. My company values the people that work there. The second positive characteristic I would list is education. My company supports the idea of employees going back to school. They have classes on our own internal network and they will also pay the tuition of employees seeking a degree. The third positive characteristic about my company is career advancement. Once a month employees are encouraged to set some time aside in order to talk to their manager about where they are going and where they want to be. If they are looking to get promoted then management will help them with the skills and education they need to get there. The fourth positive characteristic about where I work is the people. The people believe in being respectful to each other in a way that is different than other places I have worked. People help each other when the need it, and they support each other. The fifth positive characteristic about my company is the pay and benefits. The pay is above average in my area and the benefits are extremely good. All of this ties in with institutional culture because we all share the same values and believe in the quality of our work.
