Cultures can be said to be an ostensive concept, reflected by visible manifestations rather than abstract definitions. Organisation cultures are underpinned not only by imposed procedures and structures, leadership example and environmental considerations, but by social and economic ideologies also. The sociology of relationships can indeed be a major driving force behind an organisation′s culture being what it is. The way people feel in an organisation may be able to be designed by avoiding structures inimical to emotional well‐being, and embracing those which seem to be sympathetic.
