Many companies have come to realize that a positive company culture yields better work, because happy, fulfilled employees work harder and are more attentive to the quality of work being completed. However, a positive company culture consists of much more than simply giving raises and benefits, which is contrary to the type of production-oriented workplace culture that has been commonplace in the past.
To create a truly productive company, the culture of the workplace must be encouraging, supportive, rewarding, consistent and communicative. If your company does not have a positive company culture, chances are your company is failing to meet its long-term and short-term goals. To maximize the full potential of your workforce, here are 5 strategies to transform your company into a workplace brimming with positive morale that inspires every employee to achieve more and strive to produce:
- Lead by example. If management is not meeting the standards that are expected of the employees, it will breed resentment and decrease overall productivity.
- Regular communication is necessary to clarify the title and responsibilities of each employee. If employees are unclear as to whom they should report to or fail to understand how their part within the company is vital to its seamless operation, quality of services and products will be compromised.
- Every voice must be counted and welcomed. A supportive workplace in which employees feel their opinions and ideas are appreciated leads to a sense of pride and ownership in the company, which will increase the efficiency and quality of work.
- Reward the productivity of top employees through positive reinforcement in the context of the group. For example, if a goal is achieved, verbal praise should frame every success as a “team win” with special recognition of the company’s most productive employees. As the other employees pat their successful coworkers on the backs, they will also work to be a star member of your company’s team.
- Give the best, get the best. By promoting a culture of support and recognition in a fun environment, the most talented professionals in your industry will want to work for your company enabling you to hire the cream of the crop.
- Look your employees in the eyes, not down upon them. Respect your employees by speaking to them as equals whom bring expertise and a unique skill-set to the table as they are ones propelling your company forward.
