Research by international auditing firm Deloitte shows that 94% of executives and 88% of employees believe corporate culture is important to the success of the business.
Here are the important effects of a healthy office culture
Employee Attraction and Retention
A positive workplace culture is built on meaningful work, open communication, and core values. When employees are allowed to work in such a healthy environment, very few people want to quit.
To attract top candidates and retain them, organizations need to help new employees enjoy a positive workplace culture that embodies the core values of the business from day one. This helps employees quickly connect with the business, as well as actively play their role there.
Data from Workhuman iQ (employee experience analysis company) shows that the higher an employee values their company culture, the lower the likelihood that they will leave the company.
When organizations adopt policies that enhance the worker experience, such as recognition for their efforts and flexible working hours, employees feel secure and supported in their work.
Increase employee engagement
Workplace culture actively changes and develops based on the different needs and attitudes of employees, as well as having mechanisms to prevent and solve toxic problems. With these mechanisms, employees work better.
What does a positive office culture look like?
Open your emotions
For Nataly Kogan, founder and CEO of Happier, only by taking care of her own needs and feelings can she create a positive work culture for her employees.
“Practicing emotional openness is essential not only with others but with ourselves. The superficial fake emotion is pretending to feel good when you’re uncomfortable. This is a leading cause of burnout, a The kind of emotional labor that leaves you with no energy,’ she said.
Feel safe and enjoy the workplace
Dr. Patrick Malone, who has studied workplace dynamics for more than two decades, finds that finance and productivity do not play a role. The decisive factor is psychological safety – which has been less and less in recent years.
Dr. Zina Sutch says: ”If you create a workspace with love and respect, emotional exhaustion is reduced, employees take fewer breaks. As the team spirit of the employees increases, the satisfaction will also increase”.
Have Hope and Gratitude
There are four factors that are really important to business and work, which are hope, confidence, resilience, and optimism, says Dan Tamasulo, a psychology professor at Columbia University.
However, he stressed, “in my research, the most important thing is hope”.
A sustainable workplace culture is one that provides employees with the support and resources to build the psychological capital so they can do their best work. Building a space for employees to feel these things openly in the work environment, especially hope, increases happiness and growth.
Emphasize humanity at work
Organizations in all industries, especially healthcare, can add humanity to a workplace culture.
We are all human with unique wants and needs, but when healthcare professionals spend their days taking care of others, it is easy to forget about their own needs.
