Firstly, you will have to introduce yourself to all the employees working in all divisions and at all locations / branches. Make a point to meet each and evry employee in your office and know them individually by their name. Also you can meet the heads of each division and introduce yourself.
You can do networking with them by having your lunch / tea / snacks with different groups rather than getting along with one group with whom you are comfortable.
Secondly, you need to study and understand the culture of the organisation, get acquianted with the policies and procedures of the organisation, discuss your observations and learnings with your seniors in order to gain more inputs.
Remember motivation and building a great culture cannot be done in a day it will require time. You will have to develop confidence and faith about you in the minds of people. Once this happens your work will be easier.

Thank you Sumeet for your valuable advice.
Mine is a small firm so the introduction part and networking part was not a tough job. Since i have no seniors to consult with I just don't know where to go next. I have created leave forms, performance appraisal forms, exit interview forms. And i know that building a good work culture is not an easy task. but please give me some directions about how to make one.

Dear Sree,
Once you get well along with your employees. You discuss with them on individual basis about their views on organisation, job profile, career plans,problems which they face at work. If there are specific issues ,try to understand them and find solutions for them. You can implement Employee Grievance Cell , Open Door Policy. You can design Reward policies for rewarding performers in business. Also this needs to be done in consultation with a Senior Authority.

HR DOES NOT decides the culture of the organization. The management of the company or the Board of Directors does. Therefore, it is important for you to discuss your views with your management and understand from them about their expectations from the HR. I will help you immensely.

Thank you both for your valuable replies. i had implimented open door policy. But my management needs a change in the easy going nature of employees. Thats why i asked about culture and at the same time i have to motivate them.

Making HR policies
