What does a workplace culture really mean? Is it the social scene? The Instagram presence? The table football tournaments? This might be what some people want you to believe – but it's not true.
Your workplace culture touches every single aspect of your organisation. It's determined by your core values, and encompasses your leadership styles, internal communication, recruitment practices, employee work/life balance, and so much more.
A positive workplace culture is one that makes people feel valued and engaged, that nurtures, supports, and inspires your employees. It is also an essential part of your staff's health and wellbeing.
How do you make it happen? Well, it takes more than just a fresh coat of paint (or some exposed brickwork).
