How’s Your Workplace Culture?
The strength of any organization depends on its culture, but workplace culture doesn’t start at work. It begins outside the office with the beliefs and values gathered (and believed in) before a CEO or frontline employee ever steps foot into the workplace.
So how do you shape workplace culture if it begins in the minds and hearts of so many different people?
You start with leadership.
76 percent of employees agree that their managers set the workplace culture, but 40 percent say their bosses fail to frequently engage them in honest work conversations. We can do better.
Culture may be complex, but it’s also fluid, and leaders have the power to change it. A balanced, successful workplace culture starts with leaders who care about their employees and who know how to listen.
“Not only did Heather showcase an amazing understanding of human nature, employee culture, and customer happiness, but she also brought enthusiasm and tenacity. Our team is now much more engaged, and we expect substantial growth on both the top and bottom line.”
