Learning Objectives

Culture is the character and personality of your organization. It's what makes your business unique and is the sum of its values, traditions, beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes. You do not build positive culture by providing free snacks to your employees, or by having gym facilities in your workplace! To start, you begin to build positive workplace culture by clearly communicating the companies vision and talking and understanding the needs of your employees.

Key Takeaways:

  • Workplace conditions have a significant impact on employee morale and, in turn, your culture

  • Employee engagement is critical to achieve a positive workplace culture

  • Leaders have significant impact on employees. Great leaders will inspire and encourage employees to give that ‘discretionary effort'! Poor leaders will destroy a positive environment and insight fear in the workplace
