Did you know that 88% of employees believe strong company culture is key to business success (source)?
2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. That’s why it is so important to extend extra care and concern to our employees.
The book The Vibrant Workplace: Overcoming Obstacles to Building a Culture of Appreciation discusses how a vibrant workplace is essential to your organization’s success. Here are our take-aways from this great read:
- Begin with appreciation. Don’t be a stick-in-the-mud boss! Even if a task is part of an employee’s job description, say thanks for a job well done. You will positively impact your company’s culture if you share your appreciation with your employees.
- Abolish negativity and busy work. Cultivate gratitude and thankfulness, starting with you and your generous words and actions. Your employees want to feel valued and appreciated, so eliminate the busy work when you can. Interacting positively with your team members benefits everyone – especially your business!
- Recognize differences among your team members. Each of your team members bring their own unique skills and experiences to the table. Your company culture will flourish if you communicate how critical their roles are to your business’s success.
- Tackle performance issues. Employees are more than producers. That said, equity is necessary for a trusting team. Employee recognition should increase the frequency and quality of the behaviors your organization needs in order to achieve goals. Employee recognition should motivate everyone on the team toward the desired behaviors and actions.
Make your employees feel like valued members of a team driving your business growth. Excellent company culture can make your business go from good to great!
