6 Ways to Creating Great Company Culture
1. Get outta town
Bring company influencers on an offsite retreat to list your company values. From there, you can create activities throughout the year based on each of the values.
2. Hire right
Get the right people in the company in the first place before trying to force them to comply with the culture you want.
3. Ask the right questions
Find out what your employees want and what fits. Start small and build from there. You don't need to start with renovating the building to make space for the video game room -- start with a casual company lunch.
4. Get personal
Don't just look at what other companies are doing -- look at what your own company will benefit from. It's great to get ideas on what works for other businesses, but don't call it a day after reading someone else's manifesto.
5. Give employees ownership
Involve employees in the conversation on building culture -- but don't stop there. Workers need to have ownership of new projects and initiatives so they can see a process through from start to finish -- this creates way more value than if management does all the work.
6. Make sure top execs walk the walk
Creating culture isn't just on the employee's shoulders. Management needs to be committed to it as well. You can't have a culture of open communication when the CEO's door is always closed. And you can't have a culture of work-life balance when there are policies that create limited vacation days.
