Take megacorps like Google, Buzzfeed and Apple. While they’re renowned for their products, they’re even more loved for their famous company culture. Their company culture is so attractive, they’ve got people from unrelated industries desperate to work for them. Company culture is more than just complimentary Cheetos in the break room and bean bags instead of swivel chairs. Its roots go deeper than that.
Employ people that reflect your vision and mission
Team chemistry is a vital factor. Employ individuals who are aligned with your company’s mission and vision. We have ours shining big and bright on our walls. Company culture should also do its best to eliminate corporate politics and bullying culture. It should be every company’s top priority to ensure its employees feel emotionally and physically safe when at work.
Happy employees = higher productivity = happy employer
Company culture focuses on the people and their happiness. Happy employees have a direct impact on company productivity. Making your employees feel regularly appreciated and giving them clear guidance is critical. The line managers you employ need to be good educators. When in doubt, an employee that is educated instead of intimated will perform better and with more confidence.
Culture is the glue that keeps a company together. It’s something that cannot be poured into exact numbers but is important nonetheless. A healthy company culture is instrumental to the long-term success of a company. SOCIATE takes immense pride in its rich company culture.
