Organizational culture is important in a new employee's experience in a company. There can be various cultures that you as a new employee will face - national, organizational, department, or project culture. How do you as a new employee get involved in a new company? How do you adapt when moving into a new role or new country? The webinar discusses the approaches new employees can use to adapt and influence the company's culture. These approaches can be applied whether you are a junior, middle, or senior employee. This is also applicable when you are creating a new company.
