Frequently Asked Questions
How can I improve company culture?
If you have concerns that your company culture might be negative or toxic, there are several steps you can take to reverse the damage. The most important thing is to listen to those around you. Why do people feel unsafe at work? What’s perpetuating the current culture? How do people want to see things change? Then, be sure to act on these suggestions to show that you’re listening.
A negative company culture can also be rooted in a fear of making mistakes. One key part of facilitating a healthy work environment is accepting that no one is perfect. If you or another employee makes a mistake, apologize or accept their sincere apology. Don’t dwell on the moment, but do apologize, move on, and don’t make the same mistake again.
Finally, a toxic company culture is quickly created in the presence of microaggressions or outright discrimination. Make it clear that there is zero tolerance of discriminatory behavior at your organization.
Why is employee engagement important?
Put simply, positive and engaged workers generate better results. Employees complete projects faster and more efficiently. They show more initiative and creativity in their work, reporting higher productivity and fulfillment. Employees stay longer because they feel welcome and accepted. Employee engagement directly improves retention and reduces turnover.
When employees are engaged and feel comfortable communicating with managers and colleagues, and managers provide positive, constructive feedback over time, the full team benefits. In addition, team members don’t feel overworked and are able to balance their professional and personal lives.
How can I increase employee engagement?
Employee engagement can be driven by a number of factors, but at the end of the day, it’s about creating an inclusive workplace. This means using inclusive language, enacting inclusive policies, and having equitable processes in place for things like professional development and promotion.
If you’re a leader at the organization, you set the tone for the workplace culture. Make sure you’re using inclusive leadership best practices and cultivating an environment of psychological safety. Employees can’t be fully engaged if they don’t trust and respect their boss and team.
How do you measure employee experience?
Employee experience is best measured by conducting annual culture surveys and listening sessions. The only way to really know how employees feel is to solicit their feedback. When possible, collect feedback anonymously so that employees feel safe being honest. And be sure to track data year-to-year so that you can measure progress over time.
