These are the main topics that a cultural audit normally covers:

Leadership styles

Evaluating the leadership style and actions of senior managers and executives to ascertain their influence on culture.


Analyzing organizational rules, practices, and workflows to determine how well or poorly they promote the intended culture.

Company vision

Evaluation of the organization's vision, mission, and values about the actual behaviors and actions of the workforce.

Behavior in the workplace

Observing how people interact and behave at work, paying particular attention to collaboration, teamwork, respect, and ethical conduct.

Communication styles

Assessing the effectiveness of formal and informal channels of communication as well as the clarity and transparency of information flow within the organization are examples of communication styles.

Working environment

Examine the physical workspace, office design, and general work climate to see if they support a welcoming and good culture.

Perception of culture

 Understanding how employees, stakeholders, and outsiders view the organization's culture requires soliciting feedback from these groups.

Incentive programs
