Every company has a flow of operations, a hierarchal structure in which it operates to a set of standards, values and ethics, a set of directions for how employees should act, behave, and dress, and a goal or mission towards which the organization is headed. The way an organization is ran is normally set by the founders or board members at the creation of the company. Hours of strategic planning went into the organizational structure. The way in which a company operates or flows is known as corporate culture or corporate DNA. The DNA is all in the company's actions and decisions.

Each and every day, a company inherits new interactions, problems, issues, and solutions. Who is hired as an employee for the company will certainly contribute to corporate DNA. Employees contribute to the company DNA by adding morale, trust, loyalty, and pride to the company. Corporate values drive the employees to be a certain way in order to obtain the goals of the company.

Corporate DNA evolves through the workplace environment, employee interactions, and leadership development of the company. The employees are the lifeblood which drives the company in establishing its missions and goals.

The strength of corporate DNA is established by defining four important aspects: Mission Statement, Change Management, Conflict Resolution, and Workplace Health.

Mission Statement
The Mission Statement defines the company values and goals. It provides the direction, energy, focus, reflection, and discussion of the company. A successful company will have a strong sense of its core values in the mission statement. A strong mission statement will allow for real company culture to develop into daily behaviors resulting in the sense of commitment by employees to perceive the company as a whole.

Change Management
As the company develops and evolves, change will always occur. With change comes the reality of challenges for the entire company. A strong organization will be prepared to help its employees accept, adapt, and adjust to changes that directly affect success. A company that refuses to accept change will ultimately fail.

Having strategies in place to deal with major changes will help reduce risk and exposure to mistakes and negative employee morale. Providing staff training and development to understand and accept any risk and changes prepares the entire company for success.

Conflict Resolution
Throughout every stage of company development, conflicts will always arise. Depending on how the workforce is trained to handle it, conflicts will influence creativity and productivity leading to innovative solutions, or it may reduce morale, increase attrition, and halt productivity. Providing workshops for resolving and reducing conflict will strengthen employee understanding and company goals by helping the staff to communicate effectively, develop collaborative solutions, and ease employee-customer tensions.

Workplace Health
Stress-related problems, mental health illnesses, and burnout within the workplace result in businesses spending billions of dollars each year through lost productivity, health insurance, and disability claims. By providing employees with expert help, stress reduction techniques, and action to help develop the skills to deal with stress-related issues, the corporation will become a healthy workplace.
