It can be a daunting task to create a proper company culture for those just starting out in the game. Even the pros make some mistakes from time to time.
Your company has grown, and you are in charge of a workforce of hundreds. Well first of all -congrats to you and your company. It's not easy to have a profitable business that can hire so many people. And I bet finding the right people wasn't easy.
Now consider how you're going to keep those people within the company. Not taking the time on building company culture, all the work you've put in hiring the current employees, might be in vain.
E very CEO wants their team to be happy and productive. So what if there was an easy way to help keep your employees productive and inspired?
A company's greatest resource is its people. But not just people–it's the right people, working on the right things, at the right time. Organizations have invested so much in this single resource, yet do nothing to maximize it–leaving scores of employees disengaged and underutilized. And make no mistake–this is not free. This costs billions.
A s companies grow, they systematize processes and procedures to increase efficiency. We build out job descriptions based on roles, rather than individuals, and create standardized performance metrics that tie specific work activities and outcomes to compensation. This makes sense—company leadership doesn’t have time to individualize roles and there is often a need for a large group of people to perform acertain set of tasks. Job descriptions and metrics keep people accountable to the same goals and help weed out low performers. Yet according to Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace report, 87% of employees around the world are actively disengaged in their jobs.
