What makes a great company culture? And why should you care?
These are questions every employer asks at some point. Company culture has been a buzzword for some time now.
In short, a company’s culture helps make work more enjoyable. No job is stress-free, but the culture of a workplace helps to alleviate some of that inevitable job stress. Your culture helps create an environment that employees want to come to every day and may not want to leave when it’s time to go home for the night. It helps build happiness, which adds to productivity, which keeps your business booming.
Not just that, a great company culture also helps you attract potential employees. Because, let’s face it, who doesn’t want to work for a place that’s fun to be at? When presented with the opportunity for a good job in a boring environment versus one in an upbeat, fun environment, which do you think a candidate would choose?
I think we all know the answer!
Company culture is very important. And you can build one with these tips from one of the leading sources of job openings in Atlanta:
How to Create a Company Culture Employees Love
Culture creates a place your employees want to be. And you can improve yours through the following:
Hire people who fit.
Know who to look for come hiring time. Ask questions related to your work environment, management style, brainstorming process, level of social interaction, or anything else related to your culture. Walk candidates through the workplace as part of the interview process and gauge their reaction. Do they seem like they would fit and thrive?
Make sure people are on board with what you’re all about.
Your mission and values should reflect your culture and visa versa. During the interview, ask every candidate this question: Why do you want to work here? Have they done their research? Does their answer support your company mission and values? If yes—they’re a good hiring choice.
Keep a team spirit.
In other words: be all-inclusive! You’re not just individual employees, you’re a team. And that means everyone’s work and viewpoint matters. Cultures in which employees view themselves and interlinked team members are happy to support and encourage each other—because a win for one is a win for all.
