    The Story Behind WebPT’s Culture Commitments

    Company culture can be a tough thing to define. After all, it’s a set of values, beliefs, and styles shared, felt, and propagated by each and every staff member. Ideally, it’s something that develops organically based on the mix of people and personalities present in your office.

    5 Ways to Bring Your Company Culture to Life

Like any lasting relationship, though, an enduring company culture requires a continuous investment of time, effort, and attention. Sure, it’s important to identify and record your cultural values , but words without action are just letters on a page. Culture—at least the kind you want—doesn’t just happen on it’s own.
