We came across an interesting article written by by W. Michael Phibbs, M.H.R., and Frank A. Tait, J.D., that discusses the value of strong organizational culture and branding of law enforcement agencies. Here’s a blurb:
“The law enforcement brand is more than a paint scheme on a patrol car, an attractive patch, or motivational posters in headquarters. It is the reflection of the organization’s culture and the daily actions of its employees that imprint the brand onto the public. All officers, from command level to the front line in patrol, are equally responsible for maintaining the brand. Leaders influence it through internal communication, employee and organizational development, and disciplinary practices. The frontline officers exemplify it in every encounter they have with a citizen.”
We hear regularly from clients that our employee performance management software helps improve their organizational culture through peer recognition, early intervention, positive reinforcement, and the many other benefits Guardian Tracking provides. A strong, positive organizational culture is a powerful magnet that helps attract and retain high-performing employees — what organization doesn’t want these positive attributes as a reflection of itself?
