dc.description.abstract Organisational culture is one of the most essential ingredients of every organisation and yet most of the misapplied in organisations in South Africa. It drives the organisations to be relevant or irrelevant to their society/ies where they establish themselves; and influence the human resources favourably or unfavourably towards job satisfaction or job dissatisfaction. The productivity of every organisation depends heavily on the role that the human resources play. There is therefore good correspondence between satisfied employees and good productivity; dissatisfied employees and poor productivity; productive company and progressive cultures, which enhance everybody such as Ubuntu. This study judges from a theoretical perspective the relevance of organisational culture and its influence to organisational strategy. It highlights to organisations that culture is paramount to all the activities of the organisations, involving the organisations, the employees, and the society. Organisations cannot avoid cultural connotations, as they can place the organisation favourably or unfavourably to the society; and can cause dissatisfaction or satisfaction to the employees. When an organisation satisfies its customers and is deemed favourable, it goes without saying that it will be a productive and successful organisation. The responsibility to introduce a progressive organisational culture involves the government, employers, employees, trade unions and the society. The government has already institutionalised labour relations Acts, affirmative Act, Skills development Act, new tendering Act to promote equity and force organisations in South Africa, which outlaw discrimination, promote equity and force organisations in South Africa to change their culture. These Acts are accompanied by sanctions, which must be meted to all defaulting organisations. However, employers face a daunting challenge to drive their organisations in manners that will ensure that there is empowerment of all the disadvantaged groups; their organisations to adapt to new South Africa and promote job satisfaction, if their organisations are to be productive. en_US
