It is never finished Workplace culture is a work in progress
We talk a lot about the importance of workplace culture for the success of a business and we try lot’s of things. However in many cases they just don’t work. You can spend a lot of money aligning people to a great corporate culture, but ultimately employee’s need want to participate.
It is our job as employers to create the environment for a great workplace culture. One of the important elements to this, i have learned is to make sure that it is written down and there as a program that supports it.
Sometimes as managers, business owners and business leaders we are so busy rushing around we forget if we are treating everybody throughout the business equally, and fairly.
This is one of the reasons that we created the Redii.com platform which is all about experiences at work. As a manager I want to be able to see what people are working on and then see what people are saying about them.
Workplace culture is much more than just creating a program. It is really important to consistently deliver upon what you said you would do. Try to imagine what it like to be a new employee in your business, or a quiet person. Workplace culture is about including everyone in the frame work which is why a program is so important.
Every day I learn new things – so if you would like to stay up to date with what I am doing then perhaps you may want to subscribe to my Monday Motivator Newsletter so that you can get a weekly dose of motivation.
