Please include the questions in the submission.
- Culture emergence: While in the discussion you described the culture as it presently exists, the question now is how did that culture emerge? You may be able to observe this or gain an understanding from the evidence you reviewed previously, but you may need to ask others in the organization. How did the culture come to be what it is today? Has it been fairly constant over the years or have there been changes in the culture? In the paper, explain how the present culture came to be.
- The role of leaders in cultural development and/or change: As you look at the organizations culture, what relationship do you see between it and the leaders of the organization? Do they leaders play a role in shaping the culture? Have they played a role in cultural change initiatives or shifts? Discuss the relationship between the leaders of the organization and the culture, the emergence of culture or cultural elements and the role of leaders in organizational/cultural change.
- The role of ethics: Observe, look at organizational information or ask others their input regarding the role of ethics in the organizations culture. Does the organization seem to have a strong ethical component in its culture or do you may see some inconsistencies? Keep in mind that ethical considerations may have a positive or negative impact on the organization, may be large or small in scale, widespread or isolated. Regardless of how the ethics are manifest, there is an impact on the organization. Be sure to describe the role of ethics in this organizations culture.

When organizational culture is healthy, employees are motivated to be loyal to organizational management and to work (Ouchi & Wilkins, 1985). And in so doing, positive organizational culture helps in creating a sense of unity in the workplace. In addition to this, the brand image of an organization is shaped by its culture. In other words, the organization gets its unique identity from the work culture that it encourages.
Question 1. b)
Current Employers Organizational Culture
I currently work as a Billing Analyst for an office co-sharing space company, and I can say that my employer is really great. The culture is one that many outsiders admire. Apart from the free meals that we get during workdays, employees also have other benefits such as financial bonuses, employee recognition, a number of promotions annually, parties for employees and paid trips among others. All these factors come together to create a team culture in the workplace, which also serves as incentives to win the loyalty of employees.
