A culture champion is someone who believes in, helps develop, and cultivates excitement in their workplace culture. They champion the cause of their organization, and are at the forefront of how that culture emerges across it.
A culture champion also instills confidence in company missions and values, celebrates colleagues’ successes, and seeks out ways of bringing culture to life. To put it another way, culture champions are among their company’s most engaged employees.
