IBM's corporate culture is the respect for others, the pursuit of excellence, thought after action; INTEL (Intel) corporate culture is the results of the guide, constructive contradictions, the pursuit of excellence, equality and discipline.
Corporate culture is integrated into many aspects of business philosophy, management, values, group consciousness and moral norms. It is an important guarantee for China's state-owned enterprises to deepen the reform of the system. At present, under the conditions of market economy, enterprises face severe challenges. After joining the WTO, foreign goods will continue to enter China, and international competition and domestic competition will be more intense. This requires us to emancipate our minds, to renew our ideas, to establish the concept of competition, to seize the concept of distribution, to establish the principle of distribution according to work, to give priority to efficiency, Assign the idea. Get rid of confused confusion, hesitation stagnation, nothing to do the idea, set up lifelong learning, constantly updated knowledge, take the initiative to improve the concept of self-knowledge. In the process of deepening the reform of the system and establishing the modern enterprise system, we should not only use the bonds of the economy to coordinate the interests, but also use the cultural ties to adjust the employees' ideas and provide the spiritual power and ideological guarantee for deepening the reform.

The humanistic power of the corporate culture can create a relaxed working environment for employees to have harmonious interpersonal relationships, to give full play to their respective abilities, to realize self-worth and rich and colorful life. Corporate culture cohesion through the establishment of common values, business goals, the staff gathered around the enterprise, so that employees have a sense of mission and responsibility, and consciously put their wisdom and strength to the overall goal of the enterprise, the individual behavior Unified in the common direction of corporate behavior, which condense into a great impetus to the development of enterprises.The rapid development of science and technology, the management of the enterprise put forward higher requirements. In the past, the kind of mechanical, rigid, imperative management, has not adapted to the requirements of modern management. Enterprise management is only based on the basis of corporate culture, the use of cultural power and non-economic means to manage the staff, completed by the past "body" to the current "heart" of the change, only the management of modernization. Only to respect the people, motivate people, training people as the starting point and the foothold of management, in order to enable enterprises to form a disciplined, Ming integrity, unity and friendship, dedication dedication, with healthy and vibrant atmosphere of the internal business management has more High level.

In other words, good economic benefits from a good corporate image, a good corporate image is dependent on the excellent corporate culture.
