About company cultures ...

“The way I think about culture is that modern humans have radically changed the way that they work and the way that they live. Companies need to change the way they manage and lead to match the way that modern humans actually work and live.” – Brian Halligan, CEO, Hubspot,  https://www.hubspot.com/company/board-of-directors/brian-halligan 

The quote doesn't only apply for modern humans, it goes for best agers as well 🤪. The vision, mission and purpose discussion is really helpful and to focus on processes and tools is building the foundation for companies, but the key to success is people, because they are representing the company culture. Some supporting material below:

Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person — not just an employee — are more productive, more satisfied, more fulfilled. Satisfied employees mean satisfied customers, which leads to profitability. — Anne M. Mulcahy, former CEO of Xerox, https://www.cwhf.org/inductees/business-labor/anne-m-mulcahy#.XJqcud-YXVM
