Culture Connection

Culture isn't just connected to performance; it drives performance. Today's top companies invest in their corporate culture because they know corporate culture is the single greatest competitive advantage they have.

The Waterstone Culture Dashboard™ is an annual survey of your team members that is designed to help you do two things: to identify and articulate your culture; and, to benchmark your culture against the behaviours that drive winning cultures – specifically, those of Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures™.
