Assessing and Improving Organizational Culture and Climate
Research has pointed to the link between organizational culture and climate and the ability of organizations to implement evidence based practices and to improve outcomes. Come and learn about why it is important to assess and improve organizational culture and climate, and two different tools that child welfare agencies are using to do these assessments – the Organizational Social Context (OSC) measures, and the Comprehensive Organizational Health Assessment (COHA). A child welfare agency that has used each of these tools will describe the benefits and challenges of the assessment process, and their experience with using the results to make improvements. Join us for this discussion of conducting productive organizational assessments in child welfare agencies.
