Simple Keys to Create Killer Culture

Aug 4, 2015 9:00:00 AM

So you want an awesome company culture, but you're not sure where to start? In this video, you'll learn 6 easy things to do to get the workplace culture of your dreams. Be sure to check out the video below!

6 simple keys to create killer culture

 

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.
