Crafting compelling purpose statements for organisations goes beyond words; it’s about igniting a purpose that inspires action. These statements serve as guiding lights, directing teams toward meaningful goals.
Authenticity is absolutely vital, beware the danger of “purpose-washing”. In a world where job seekers, especially Gen Zs, seek more than just a pay check, authentic purpose attracts the right talent.

Culture is vital for organisational success, influencing behaviour, audience reactions, and business health. However, cultural change often fails due to unclear objectives, misaligned values, insufficient buy-in, resistance, and vague outcomes. To succeed, organisations should define the desired culture, effectively communicate the vision, involve employees, demonstrate leadership through consistent actions, regularly collect feedback, and create opportunities for ongoing assessment. Making strategic cultural shifts and challenging existing practices empowers organisations to strengthen themselves for the future.

There are substantial benefits to a strong organisational culture, with the subject becoming more and more pertinent with recent changes in workplace expectations. So there should be no surprise there is a desire to deliver culture change initiatives aiming to achieve truly transformational outcomes. But with a plethora of factors possibly impeding success, it’s imperative to set up triggers to measure impact.

We’ve already started to see a wide range of benefits – especially for those that may only be able to work if they can find accommodating jobs. However, with so many different factors to consider, it’s becoming harder to accommodate modern expectations of the workplace and the landscape is still evolving. One thing we do know though is that culture trumps strategy every time. Culture doesn’t happen by accident though, it needs to be nurtured – and with agile working it’s no different.

Cutting through the noise isn’t easy. Especially when there are many competing protocols and processes you’ve got to keep in your head. Cyber and information security might not always feel like the most important subject, and it’s often perceived as difficult and complicated, or even “someone else’s responsibility”. So bringing the responsibility, risks and subconscious choices that we make every day to life could make the difference in the long run.

Traditionally senior leaders, departments that handle sensitive data such as HR and Finance, and new starters might have seemed like a pretty exhaustive selection of people to aim your cyber security communications at. However, organisations and cyber threats are constantly evolving. So it’s all good and well saying the right things when it comes to cyber security, but it doesn’t matter if you’re not talking to the right people.
