You are the Human Services Manager. Using the definitions of culture and climate presented think of a human service organization with which you are familiar with (volunteered, previous employer, current employer, etc.). Make a list or create a chart of the key attributes of the climate of this organization as you observed and experienced them.
How did you and others react to these aspects of the climate? Specifically, did your reaction to these aspects of the agency’s life lead you to be more or less committed to the organizations goals, more or less satisfied with your job, more or less likely to think about (or actually) changing jobs, and more or less invested in helping clients? What is each employees responsibility to the culture and climate of the workplace? What makes a workplace rewarding to you? How could a manager incorporate those essential factors into the workplace?
Be sure to analyze the importance of organizational climate and culture to human service administration.
