Cultures in organizations are very important conduits for both relationships and loyalty. Businesses and non-profits alike enjoy positive and engaging environments based on the core values driven by cultural influence. Regardless of business similarity, each company is unique here in our part of Canada and it is because of the people, the culture and the climate. Dale Carnegie Training believes that employee engagement within health workplaces drives the energy and wellness of every business.
Employees who are involved in decision making and problem solving:
- Contribute ideas
- Engage in risk and process improvement
- Voice opinions
- Create ways to complete goals and objectives
For leadership, as we head into the second half of 2014, a healthy culture is important for growing a sense of belonging and the sharing of common core values. Employee engagement makes the competitive business.
An engaged culture promotes:
- The focus on success and opportunity
- The building of positive relationships
- Increased profitability through loyalty and retention
- Honest and ethical communication
- Common accountability
The best people are difficult to identify and hire. Individuals looking for good jobs look for good cultures. Candidates look for clear goals, work flexibility, training, and core values. It is important for every business to use its culture to promote positive image. In this Google world, it just makes sense to make the culture easy to find in search directories.
The strategies of continually looking for good people and building trust are found within a healthy environment and culture.
Dale Carnegie Training encourages the strong relationship between cultural wellness and employee engagement. The business classic, How to Win Friends and Influence People, is the basis for honest relational engagement in both life and work. It is well worth the read as organizations develop increasing important processes to grow and support employees. It all begins with opportunity.
