Video: How Jamie Oliver creates his company’s culture

The undeniable importance of a company’s culture permeates everything an organisation does, from its day-to-day operations to the way it recruits.

Or at least it should. But how does it work when a company has one person as its centre? How do you translate their thoughts into an actionable strategy and way of working?

Daniel EleyToday I thought I’d share a video by HR Grapevine featuring Daniel Eley, Head of People and Development at the Jamie Oliver Group talking about how the popular chef creates the company’s culture.

Disclosure: I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Daniel as the Jamie Oliver Group is a client of mine.

So grab a cup of tea and get a peek into the importance of culture and the reality of working in such an organisation.
