Cultural Assessment & Integration
Align culture with talent and strategy to optimize growth.
Culture is created and established every day through the behaviors and norms of teams and individuals within your organization. It’s critical to design and construct the desired cultural attributes needed to succeed as a team. Partner with Stewart Leadership and learn to shape your company culture through DEI education and alignment efforts. We’ll work together to create an engaging culture by identifying the mission, vision and values of your organization, as well as integrate culture and talent during a merger or acquisition.
Creating an Inclusive Workplace Culture
Inclusive leaders make a commitment to DEI in the workplace and do everything they can to uphold it. Our consultants will work one-on-one with the leaders on your team and facilitate development solutions to create a culture of inclusion with leaders who are self-aware, humble, open-minded, and empathetic.
Engage Culture & Create a Mission, Vision and Values
In addition to creating an engaging culture, our consultants work with your team to develop a mission, vision, and values the whole organization agrees on. The mission statement will be a formal summary of what you do and why you do it, which will include the aims and values of your organization.
The vision statement will define the optimal future state of the organization, including what you want to achieve over time. Lastly, we’ll help determine the values, which are a set of principles that guide how your organization behaves toward relationships and tasks.
Partner with us to ensure success during a merger or acquisition by focusing on your culture, mission, vision, and values.
How Stewart Leadership Manages the People Side of an Acquisition
Mergers and acquisitions have two sides: the business side and the people side. Too often, organizations spend the majority of their focus on the business side, leaving the people side as an afterthought. The people side involves leadership alignment, cultural integration, and organizational design. Without this, value from the M&A activity can be completely lost.
Stewart Leadership’s Cultural Assessment & Integration program follows these four steps to ensure people are aligned during a merger and/or acquisition:
Stewart Leadership’s M&A Cultural Integration Solution
Each merger and acquisition is unique. Having a cultural integration solution will help identify issues early on so organizations can create a plan to overcome them. Together with Stewart Leadership, companies can improve integration execution and ultimately prevent talent and culture challenges in the future.
Stewart Leadership’s Cultural Assessment & Integration program uses interviews, surveys, and focus groups to assess and identify gaps in an organization’s current culture. To start, our consultants will conduct an organizational culture assessment to highlight the following:
- Cultural alignment and risks across organizations
- Employee satisfaction and retention risk
- Strengths and opportunities
Using this information, we will create a cultural integration plan tailored specifically for your organization’s future success.
