The theoretical approaches to define the scientific definition "corporate culture" in the sociological, economic, psychological and pedagogical contexts have been analyzed. The corporate culture of a social institution is understood as a system of collective norms, beliefs, values and traditions of joint activity of employees, aimed at achieving the strategic goals of the organization. Based on the results of using standardized methods, the conducted monitoring research reflects the role of corporate culture for a high-quality social employees‟ activity in general, and helps to determine the level of its formation among specialists who work for social services. The diagnostic study was carried out on the basis of seven city centers of social services for families, children and youth from different regions of Ukraine. The object of the study were 78 employees. The diagnostics of formation of corporate culture was performed using the methodology of Ladanov (1997), as well as methods developed by Cameron and Quinn (2011), Denison, Hofstede (2004), Solomandina. The results of the diagnostic analysis have shown a medium level of corporate culture formation among the employees of social institutions.
