An AWESOME workplace culture is built upon the brand & values of an organization. It is the most fundamental part of creating a winning organization. By crafting a world class culture, this will act as a magnet to attract and retain top talent.
Culture is the “internal vibe” that exists in a workplace and it has a huge influence on employees’ behaviours, productivity, and work quality. Culture is made up from the core values, beliefs, and behaviours widely shared across the organization.
Workplace culture takes years to build (and years to change!). Culture transformation takes a comprehensive plan connected to the recruitment strategy to build a world-class culture.
Top employers create cultures that embrace involving their people in key decisions, providing clear strategic direction, and demonstrating strong ethics, and open communication. They offer their people opportunities for growth and advancement, a safe and secure work environment, and often above market average compensation.
Your people’s level of motivation, performance, job satisfaction, and productivity are all an lagging indicators of the workplace culture. Culture is heavily influenced by the leadership style and communication style of your senior management team as well as the organization’s HR policies/practices.
Human Resources plays a vital role in putting together a change management plan to facilitate culture transformation. Higher Talent can partner with your leadership team to assess the positive and negative aspects of your current culture, and put together a long-term plan for culture change.
