Workplace culture refers to an organization’s work environment, staffing practices, mission statement, decision making, and leadership styles. The sum of the values, traditions, beliefs, interactions, behaviours, and attitudes acceptable and encouraged in an organization are the factors that make the organization unique. The manner in which communication occurs in the workplace is another one of these factors. This includes the degree, type, and frequency of interaction between managers and employees, and the extent of transparency while sharing information and making decisions.
