The CEO of Viacom recently posted an article commenting on the transformation of the company’s cultures over the years since beginning two decades ago and emphasized the importance of the alignment of the company’s goals with that of its employees. There are plenty of literature aimed at managerial people, but it’s nice to take into account this article because Robert Bakish has been with the company for two decades and has watched the decline of its culture do to notions of “emphasizing short-term results at the expense of longer-term strategy.” He started his mission as CEO to reinvigorating the work culture Viacom had come to be loved for by launching a task force that was focused on figuring out what works and what does. Bakish also mentions that, “We rolled out our first-ever company mission, vision and values built around honesty, bravery and empathy to ensure we were all heading in the same direction.” Progress is measured by the results of the business at the end of the first quarter which has just passed and appears promising. He invited people from worldwide, both in and outside the company to comment on what could be improved (which is important as Viacom workforce is on many continents). He plans to equip employees with and understanding of the common vision, engage them those leading the change, and inspire the bets work possible. I will close with a quote from University of Pennsylvania professor of management and psychology as follows: “When it comes to landing a good job, many people focus on the role. Although finding the right title, position and salary is important, there’s another consideration that matters just as much: culture. The culture of a workplace — an organization’s values, norms and practices — has a huge impact on our happiness and success.” Best of luck finding the work culture that suites you!
