There is nothing better than working for an organization that has a great culture. It makes waking up and going to work each morning so much better! We spend so many of our waking hours at work that it’s no surprise a positive workplace culture is so high on employees’ ‘must-have’ list. While the work may be demanding, your company culture should not add stress to the day-to-day. In fact, it should inspire, motivate, and elevate enthusiasm. It may sound like a lofty goal, but it is attainable. Here are a few ways organizations can create a positive workplace culture:
- Establish clear organizational core values that are communicated effectively and make employees feel involved
- Foster collaboration and open and honest communication
- Create an inclusive work environment where employees are valued and supported
- Create clear goals and rewards for employees
A positive workplace culture improves teamwork, raises morale, increases productivity and efficiency, and results in employees who want stay with your organization. But it all begins with strong leadership and the desire to look at what’s working and what’s not. A cultural values assessment evaluates where your company culture currently stands, what’s missing, and establishes a plan to make effective change.
