When employers are too focused on measuring employee engagement, deliberate workplace culture strategies tend to fall by the wayside.
In Europe, there's a lot of valuable focus on "talent management". Yesterday I asked a client for his definition of talent management, and he said "hiring and developing the best people". He also told me that one of the big strategy consultancies had been making presentations in his organisation that talent management was the key, and with this, culture would take care of itself.

Yesterday I had a conversation with an OD manager who used this word to describe his organisation"s goal in relation to their efforts on culture next year. "We need to refresh our culture and to re-engage people in our purpose for wanting to improve it". Given so many companies have dedicated effort already to building values and behaviour that suits their goals and strategies, there is likely to come a moment where it seems important to refresh.
