The following article is a sample from the full BVOP™ Ultimate Guide and is part of the preparation for the BVOP™'s modern Agile Human Resources Management Professional Certification Program.
Establishing people-and-business-oriented culture
The Business Value-Oriented People Management (BVOPPM) office develops a people-and-business-oriented culture in which all everyone in the organization is perceived and treated as a person and human being and a business partner at the same time. The culture balances formal and friendly relations equally because this balance helps people to relate to each other openly and positively. At the same time, all responsibilities are taken seriously.
The BVOPPM office creates cultural and behavioral rules and suggestions or modifies them when needed. The modifications are based on the perception and adoption of the culture by the people.
People-and-business-oriented culture may include:
- Treating everyone as a person and a business partner at the same time.
- Respecting others' emotions, feelings, and peculiarities.
- Respecting others' time and responsibilities.
- Accepting and following organizational strategies and missions.
- Business etiquette.
- Positive and supportive attitude.
Spreading culture across the organization
The culture of the organization needs to be spread across all offices, departments, teams, individuals, and even to external interested parties that may need to understand the organizational culture and align their interactions with the organization to it.
A culture that involves personal and business relations together may not be easy to established and understood.
Accepting and understanding specific culture may need time and effort. Some people may not understand the ideas and goals of the organizational culture, and this is normal.
People usually perceive and accept ideas and behavior when they experience them first. Accepting new ideas needs time.
