Dear Kajal,

Work climate and HR climate are both the larger part of organisation culture. Most of the ingredients of organisation culture make the work climate. When I go for business call, at times MDs, Directors, VPs told me following:

a) I keep on telling my subordinates to do _____. But they don't listen to me.

b) Team members in my company do not share information or their resources among one another.

c) If I don't turn up to office, nobody will care whether I am alive or dead. If I don't turn up for six days, then HR will call my home.

d) Comment by some staff - "_______ will never happen in my company"

e) "when the cat's away, mice will play", is truly applicable in my company

f) Shakespeare was write when he said, "king knows what his courtiers wanted him to know"

and so on.

The above are the examples of work climate.

You can read more on organisation culture in any book on OB. Following are the ingredients of Organisation Culture:

Recruitment Standards
Team Orientation
Respect for Individual
Customer focus
Entrepreneurial Attitude
Continuous Learning
Openness to Change
Performance criteria

HR climate is also part of organisation culture. But HR head or manager can control this climate. HR climate is something how the induction training is conducted, how the payroll are processed, how the provisions of statutory laws are communicated. How HR is helpful to the staffs when they raise some query and so on.

HR climate or organisation climate are both the by-products of Oeganisation Culture. leadership is the fountain-head of organisation culture. It is the leadership that gives the shape to both.
