Looking Forward: How To Improve Your Company Culture

By Business Desk

Tuesday, September 17, 2019.

No matter how impressive your company and its product may be, or how much potential there is for the employees who work within it, none of this matters if your company culture isn’t up to scratch. 

Bad company culture means employees are more likely to leave or feel dissatisfied, and you’ll never be getting the best out of employees if this culture isn’t improved. 

A good company incorporates a healthy and happy working ethos, and here are some suggestions on how to do that.

Ensure Software Is Up to Date 

Having the latest systems and software which can make particular jobs a whole lot easier can really improve the smooth running of the company and alleviate pressure on employees. 

If employees are required to use certain software themselves and are dependent on it to get their job done, then ensuring that all systems are up to date and handy features are installed means any employee can remain motivated and satisfied rather than frustrated and unable to do their job. 

Human resources software is particularly helpful when it comes to the running of a company within a busy team. The XCD CoreHR is a powerful tool which can make simple tasks a lot easier, leaving employees free to concentrate on other tasks. 

Establish a Clear Company Goal 

Workers within a company need to know what they’re aiming for, and what the end goal is of their job. A clear and agreed understanding of this goal throughout a team of staff means that everybody is working towards the same company values, and therefore this creates a stronger sense of teamwork and a secure bond. 

If a company is unclear on exactly what its values are and what it expects from its employees, then this can lead to misunderstanding, confusion and, ultimately, a breakdown of communication. 

Offer Flexibility 

It’s not always possible to offer leniency with set working hours, especially within certain industries where jobs have to be completed at a certain time. However, wherever flexibility is possible, it should be embraced to encourage productivity and loyalty from a team of employees. This could include the option for homeworking certain days of the week, or offering flexible hours as long as the work gets done by a certain deadline.

Employees respond well to support from management in terms of working hours, rather than repetitive hours chained to a desk and no wiggle room. 

Recognise and Reward Hard Work 

A stable and positive company culture should embrace encouragement and growth, and the only way to do so is by providing praise and feedback where necessary, and rewarding hard work. No employee likes to be overlooked and micromanaged, and this can breed resentment down the line. 

It may be necessary to pinpoint areas to improve along the way, but this should be coupled with recognition of good work rather than an overwhelming focus on the negative. An improved company culture should empower employees and encourage them to always work at their best.
