Many companies often don't allow themselves to go where the trend is or are unwilling to adapt to the times because of its newness.
There are multiple reasons as to why this happens:
A growing company is in essence a team of individuals of varying skills who come from different cultures, creating a unique company culture by working together.
This beehive of individuals shapes the assumptions, beliefs and values of the organization, apart from the surface-level elements like branding, company benefits, hierarchy and the various HR policies.
Adaptability is the personality trait that helps determine how you respond to change. It’s composed of flexibility (your willingness to change) and versatility (your ability to change). Adaptable people are less anxious and deal better with changes than those were not.
While we may have natural tendencies to be more or less adaptable, we can consciously decide to be more mentally flexible.
