It also related with the management and leadership which is established through social responsibilities, behaviour, organizational culture and behaviours as well as management teams (Robbins, and Judge, 2012). In present case, BBC is a Britishpublic service broadcaster in UK which has achieved growth and recognition in market. Apart from this, organization has also faced some downfall in their growth in previous years due to rise in their employee turnover because of autocratic culture within enterprise and politics within top management. As per case, employees in organization were not allowed to participate in decision making and also employees have also faced the problems of bullying and harassment. The culture power and politics have also affected BBC in past several years. Moreover, power culture within enterprise is considered that only some specific individuals in management possess the power and authority within their hand their hand and they also have particular rights within in order to make decisions. This has also been considered as dictatorship within BBC. In this, various employees within organization was bullying, abused and harassed by some senior managers.

In the year 2014, top management of BBC after analysing decline in growth has decided to hire new human resource director Valerie Hughes-D’Aeth. Moreover, the intent of new HR director was to remove power culture from corporation and making real efforts to transform it to people’s management.

According to (DuBrin, 2013), positive culture tends to promote effective communication between team members at workplace and also raise coordination towards increasing productivity and profitability of enterprise in industry. In BBC, main priorities of management have been distributed in main key areas which have redefined its structure.

As per case, new director has decided to remove 40% of senior managers in order to eliminate power culture from workplace. Moreover, director have also distributed structure of enterprise within two important parts such as national and regional, channels and commissioning.
