We hear so much about company culture; what exactly is it? Every organization has a culture, and the culture of a company is determined by the core values. A good company culture inspires staff and evolves over time.
In Entrepreneur, Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, says, “Top Company Culture winners outperform average organizations on many levels, but one key distinction stands out: Leaders see the competitive advantage of creating a workplace culture where employees are highly engaged." The way people treat each other has a ripple effect.
Recruitment: One of the best ways to attract competitive talent is to treat your employees well and have a positive culture. Reputation is important.
Loyalty and retention. Create a team and show employees they're valued.
