Organizational culture has been one of the most studied and theorized concepts in organizational development. New ways of working, globalization, increased competition and change in technology have created a greater need for strategic innovation and co-ordination and integration across units. Culture is the single most important factor for success or failure and has the greatest potential to affect organizational improvements or hold it back. In order to implement strategic initiatives or performance improvement interventions, it is important that an organization understands the current status of its organizational culture. The best way to gain understanding of the culture is by assessing it .The Survey measures four culture traits, namely, involvement, consistency, adaptability and mission. Descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. Results indicated that employees perceived involvement, consistency, adaptability and mission positively. Furthermore, there were no significant differences found for consistency and sense of mission by employees in different departments. This study helps in identifying the weaker aspects of culture in terms of values and beliefs that prevail in the organization.
