An organization that discourages initiative, demonstrates a lack of vision, and implements counterproductive rules is the perfect breeding ground for The Culture Monster. People fear that if they speak honestly they will be punished, and low workplace morale creates disengaged and unproductive employees. Imagine a business with great potential that is being held back by its culture. The Culture Monster has defeated most of the humans in the organization, and some of the humans have even vanished (been terminated or resigned). Those that remain are Culture Victims. Some are cowering in their cubicles; others spend their breaks, lunches, and after-hours meetups complaining about work and sending out their resumes to other companies.
