Abstract

Culture plays an important role in the performance of the organisation and in how potential employees perceive the company as an employer. A review of organisational culture and the lessons learnt from other successful organisations is imperative for the growth of the organisations. With the Schein’s model of organisational culture as a theoretical framework, this paper discusses the employee-centric culture of Asia Pacific International Limited (APIL). The paper reviews the strengths and weaknesses of APIL in terms of its organisational culture. The paper would then discuss the case-studies of two successful organisations, J.C Penny and Infosys, both of which have a strong employee-centric culture like APIL. Based on the lessons learnt from these two case studies, we recommend a few organisational changes in the culture of APIL, which would lead to the success and growth of APIL.

Keywords: Organisational Culture, Norms, Artifacts, Values, Human Capital Management
