It’s about getting the best people, retaining them, nurturing a creative environment & helping to find a way to innovate.
It’s not easy as a senior level leader to understand the culture that embraces and dictates your company. Sometimes, when you’re removed from day to day business activities you lose sight of negative cultures forming within your organization.
When your employees are unhappy, they’ll show themselves the door before they speak with you.
Be on the lookout for spikes in turnover and take a hard look at your company’s culture when it happens.
How damaging is poor culture on your workforce?
- Low self esteem
- Poor performance
- Lost talent opportunities
- Lack of growth
- Lost revenue
Make culture a priority from the onset, and reiterate it’s importance from day 1, when you hire a new individual. Continue to reinforce and focus on the importance of positive culture.
Don’t wait until it’s too late.
