Survey: Organizational Culture
We have received great feedback from you all for the "Organizational Culture Surveys Part 1 & 2." Thank you for your participation! CLICK HERE for the third and final part of the survey!
Organizational culture is defined as the underlying beliefs, assumptions, values, and ways of interacting that contribute to the unique social and psychological environment of an organization. Organizational culture is a set of shared assumptions that guide what happens in organizations by defining appropriate behavior for various situations. (Ravasi & Schultz, 2006) Organizational culture affects the way people and groups interact with each other, with clients, and with stakeholders. Also, organizational culture may influence how much employees identify with the organization (Schrodt, 2002)
We encourage staff who work with sexual assault survivors in Iowa, whether it is formally or informally, to complete the survey by clicking here. This includes sexual assault advocates, directors, dual advocates, shelter staff who take sexual assault cases, preventionists, and dual or sexual assault advocates within culturally specific programs.
A healthy and supportive organizational culture is imperative for the well-being of advocates and for the organization overall. This series of surveys was created to view a snapshot of the organizational culture in sexual assault programs across the state. The results will help IowaCASA staff identify needs in this area, reflect on the results, and provide the appropriate TA to member programs. This survey is anonymous and the results will be reported back to everyone with major themes, resources, and support.
