  • M. Y. Dmytrenko Cherkassy banking institute of the university of banking of the National bank of Ukraine
Keywords: corporate culture, culture of the staff, methodology of corporate culture, multiculturalism, culture of the industrial society, mass culture, organizational culture


The relevance of the study of corporate culture in philosophical and anthropological plane is particularly significant for the countries with socialist past, where corporate culture was practically destroyed by the unified «culture of socialist labour» and the pre-modern organizational forms of the illegal work of the so-called workshop workers. Overcoming this legacy is an important prerequisite for the spiritual renewal of such societies, including Ukraine. Outlining cultural and anthropological status of corporate culture and the ways of its humanization will help to assert European standards of the culture of labour and cultural freedom in Ukraine. The aim of the publication is to study corporate culture and the culture of the staff in the comparative plane, focusing on the methodological approaches to their differentiation.The author points out the content and characteristics of corporate culture and the culture of the staff. The culture of the staff in the Late Modern constellations as well as corporate culture has both similarities and differences. Their common features are due to the influence of mass culture, subculture of the information society, organizational culture. Their differences are primarily of historical and anthropological nature. Corporate culture is defined as the essence of material, spiritual and social values created by the employees of the companies in the course of their activities and which reflect the uniqueness and individuality of this company. The author grounds the statement about the importance of working out methodological criteria for their differentiation.
