Great company culture equals better results.
Think about it, with company culture now as important as salary for job hunters, you’re bound to attract a higher caliber of candidates if what you can offer stands out.
And what about your current team? If they feel valued for the effort they put in, they’ll not only be happier, they will continue to strive for greatness.
But, how do you create a company culture that develops confidence, trust and where productivity can thrive?
Check out our top 3 ways to achieve an incredible company culture:
1) Praise – It’s pretty simple right, someone does a good job and you acknowledge it. But you’d be surprised how many companies get this wrong. Giving praise shows you’re across what your team are doing, and encourages them to keep up the good work. Some companies even take time out each week to publicly recognise each other and the work they do, no matter how small and this practice has been proven to be more effective than a pay rise.
2) Time Off – it’s not uncommon for employees to do overtime, and when you’ve got a deadline having staff that are prepared to go above and beyond to get the job done on time, is invaluable. Recognising overtime, with time off in return shows your team you don’t just care about results, (which are of course important) you also care about their well being. And, a healthy team equals better results, so it’s win win!
3) A Gift – Show some real appreciation to your team and organise an activity outside of the office. A meal is the obvious choice, but why not organise an experience that they can’t help but love. An afternoon of sailing on Sydney Harbour is so easy to organise and yet has incredible impact. Make your team feel like superstars for the morning as you effortlessly glide past the Opera House and under the Harbour Bridge. Click here to find out more about Go Sail Corporate Charters.
