Embracing the tech revolution doesn’t just come down to acquiring advanced software. Transformation involves embracing diversity, having the right people in place, and keeping them engaged in IT in order to future-proof your business  – but it also means rethinking your company culture.

In this Switched:ON blog, we consider the importance of cultural change in the mission to accomplish digital transformation.

Leaders have a big role to play

Business culture is, in part, created by the workforce. As staff members get to know one another and form a bond, it gives rise to a particular type of working atmosphere. Nonetheless, leaders can still shape this within their company you just need the right people in place to make it happen.

It’s all about hiring an authoritative yet approachable person to take charge of company culture and instil a collective ethos that’s geared towards embracing digital transformation.

Leaders can encourage the use of tech and software in day-to-day business processes, putting staff in a frame of mind that ensures further tech-focused changes are absorbed into the culture quickly with minimal fuss.

Your culture is your brand

The startup mentality is key

Some businesses have been doing things a certain way for decades and seeing excellent results in the process. But digital transformation has brought with it the need for a new way of thinking.

Startup business are embracing this mindset right from the beginning – and many corporations are turning to these smaller firms to gain an insight into how to thrive in the digital era.

With the startup mentality, there’s refreshed focus on listening and learning, as well as on what the client wants and adapting processes to meet expectations. It’s a real-time world that runs at a faster pace – with frequent testing favoured over quarterly reports – so it pays to bring on board someone that is comfortable with this.
