Why would a company have a page devoted to culture?
Because it's important. Maybe THE most important thing if you want to have a great organization where people demonstrate great attitudes, work hard, and deliver results while having fun. It doesn't happen by accident, and it's not easy.
Over 13 years ago, I joined a leadership organization called Vistage. We talked a lot about culture, but at first I just didn't "get it." Two speakers made all the difference: Dr. Gustavo Grodnitzky and David J. Friedman. Dr. Grodnitzky's book "Culture Trumps Everything" explains why culture is important and how it drives performance and ultimately success as an organization. David Friedman's book explains a method of defining and implementing the culture you desire.
From this time spent on learning, I created the 28 Avtec Fundamentals, which are listed below. These are very specific and observable behaviors we expect from everyone at Avtec. Every week there is an Avtec "fundamental of the week," which is an opportunity for a member of our team to write a short article from their experience and perspective, which I share with all employees and even our contractors. Everyone gets a turn! This helps us know each other better and hone in on what the Fundamentals really mean.
