Companies are no longer just striving to create a product or service that is better than the competitor. In this shifting people management environment they must create a work environment that is better and more fulfilling for the employee. Poor company culture makes employees feel undervalued and increases turnover, while positive company culture does just the opposite.
When a meaningless company culture is in place employees, new and old, feel unwelcome, undervalued and can’t see the impact of their contributions. Company values should be emphasized through continuous management feedback and reinforcement; if not, success is disconnected and employees can feel defeated. With countless jobs available, top talent doesn’t have to endure a negative or disjointed company culture. Applicants are now solely seeking out businesses that make the “Best Places to Work” lists.
