Creating a Favorable Work Culture
Do you consider yourself a person who acts with kindness and positivity?
CorpStrat’s positive workplace culture is one of the most important features that we provide for our employees. We believe our culture throughout the years has been the driving force in attracting and retaining our employees on a long-term basis. Consider some of these ways to build more of an inspiring office culture.
One of the strategies we use to maintain a positive working environment is planning a monthly activity, we call “Friday Fun.”
For approximately 45 minutes, everyone takes a break and convenes in an area of the office to play a game – ‘Name that tune’ and Cornhole are two of our favorites. We also offer prizes, which adds to the liveliness of the game. The goal is to make it an extended, relaxing, and fun-filled break, which allows an opportunity for everyone to bond, and to strengthen the chemistry among our team.
Setting The Tone
A favorable work culture is one which encourages employees to behave like a family and one where employees have each other’s back. Everyone shares and supports one another’s goals, in addition to celebrating our successes.
Though leaders are mostly responsible for setting the tone, employees also contribute to how the cultural dynamic unfolds. So, it’s no surprise when companies develop a positive and kind work culture, they achieve substantially higher levels of effectiveness.
It is vital in bringing out the best in employees, even in adverse circumstances. Research shows the best way to improve your work culture is positive communication amongst your staffers, increased mindfulness, supportive attitudes, team spirit and providing a sense of purpose. That’s why when employees work as a team to meet both the company’s and their own personal needs, it’s a win-win for everyone!
