Building a Healthy Workplace Culture
Have you noticed that organisational culture is a hot topic these days? We believe that workplace culture has the greatest impact on employee engagement, and nearly every organization would like to see involvement levels rise.
An organization's culture can vary somewhere between a healthy and unhealthy range. A healthy culture is filled with vibrant energy and increased productivity.
"Culture is key to raising employee motivation and engagement"
Thus it's important for every employee to learn and understand the importance of building a healthy and inclusive organizational culture. Building an organizational culture with high employee engagement yields its own set of benefits.
1)Increased employee productivity: When employees feel valued and supported, they are more likely to be engaged and motivated, leading to increased productivity.
2)Improved employee retention: A healthy workplace culture can help reduce employee turnover by creating a positive work environment where employees want to stay.
3)Increased collaboration and teamwork: A positive workplace culture can foster collaboration and teamwork, as employees are more likely to communicate and share ideas.
4)Better communication: A healthy workplace culture can improve communication between employees and managers, leading to a more efficient and productive work environment.
5)Reduced absenteeism and presenteeism: A positive workplace culture can help reduce absenteeism and presenteeism (employees coming to work but not being fully productive), as employees feel more supported and valued.
6)Improved mental health: A healthy workplace culture can help improve employees' mental health by reducing stress and anxiety and promoting work-life balance.
7)Enhanced reputation: A company with a healthy workplace culture can have a positive reputation, attracting top talent and clients who value ethical and positive work environments.
Culture is the social context in which we operate and the way that we collaborate. In the organizational context, culture can be simply defined as "It's how we work together in this environment".
