Organisational culture and sustainability

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


Building and maintaining a strong, positive organisational culture is essential in ensuring that organisations are equipped with the capacity to sustain performance in response to cyclical markets. This workshop explores recent research involving various aspects of behaviour in the workplace and considers the implications for the development and maintenance of sustainable organisational cultures. In doing so, a number of important constructs are examined, including proactive behaviour, civility in the workplace, and the role of operational leadership. The symposium will also examine the strategies that can be invoked to recognise and respond to changes in organisational culture. In building on the outcomes of this research, it may be possible to establish early indicators of deteriorations in organisational culture, thereby enabling the development and implementation of interventions. Finally, the symposium will provide a plenary session creating an opportunity to integrate the outcomes of this symposium with the outcomes of the 2 preceding ISL symposia concerning sustainable organisations.
