Organization work culture is the key to long term business successes. The culture of the organization or the workplace identifies the uniqueness of the company and defines the behavior of the employees among themselves and also with the people outside the organization like partners and suppliers and business clients. A great work culture sustains employee’s enthusiasm to do more productive work and contribute to the growth of the organization effectively.
How to maintain a great work culture
- Hiring people that fit in your work culture - The work culture binds the employees of the organization together and helps them collaborate and be productive. It is very important to hire the people who are not only monetarily motivated but also aligned with the values and policies of the work culture. Even high performing employees and candidates are good for the business but detrimental for the company’s growth in the long run. Since the people hired for a company represent the organization even outside, it is important to hire person who share company’s values.
- Employees should be in alignment with the values - The employee performance and productivity must be in alignment with the company’s mission and values. The employees must understand the core principles, attitudes, strategy and values of the company. And ensure they are living by them throughout their employment. It is the responsibilities of the organization to have an open communication with the employees on timely basis and also make an assessment of the understanding and the sensitivities of the employees towards the company.
- Employee care - An organization’s culture largely influences an individual’s mindset about work. If an employee feels satisfied and motivated to work, he is likely to stay in the organization for quite long. It is necessary for the organization to make the employee feel valued and heard. It is very strategic to know that good decisions can come from anywhere. Employee feedback on company’s strategies and policies and about employee care are good checks to identifying and building a strong work culture.
- Collaboration- Employees must have a feeling of togetherness with the other colleagues and feel a sense of loyalty towards the organization. As long as the employee feels like an individual working only as an employee and not as a team, the organization work culture makes little impact.
