Organizational culture has been described as a shared perception of reality and values within a group of individuals. Within the group's shared values about what is appropriate and inappropriate behavior and shared values make it easier for individuals to understand what is expected of them. If the desired culture from the management team is not consistent with the culture of the employees there might be a collision. This because the culture is fundamental to what is appropriate and inappropriate behavior and creates solidarity within the organization. This study was conducted in a construction company in Sweden. The company started about three years ago and has chosen to focus on creating a specific and consistent organizational culture. The management team has an interest to find out if the culture they have strived to implement is the culture that the employees are experiencing.
The purpose of this study is to explore whether the organizational culture that management pursues is the same as the employees experience. The aim is to see if these two experiences are the same or in any way differs. In case of any discrepancies, we will suggest possible development opportunities.
The study's empirical material is collected by means of questionnaires, interviews and observations.
The study shows that in several occasions that management and staff perceptions of the organization's culture are the same. A couple of matters stuck out from the outcome of the study, where, for example, the common events were not appreciated as much as expected and for the most part appreciated by employees born in 80’ - and 90's.
