Weekending Recap – Company Culture

August 15, 2014

It’s Friday afternoon – I’m sure many people are looking forward to the end of their workweek and are ready for some rest and relaxation.  Before breaking for the weekend, I wanted to encourage you to take a moment and reflect on your week and hopefully be inspired to return next week recharged and ready to make a difference at your workplace.  As you may know I often write about Work-Life Balance.  I think it’s just as important to remind yourself why your work is worth it and what it is that makes you keep doing it day after day, week after week.  This blog post, I want to focus on how Company Culture can add to your satisfaction in the workplace and keep you coming back for more than just a paycheck.

Although a recent Business Insider survey of Millennials showed that when asked to select the 3 most important factors in job selection, Millenials ranked “Pay” number one, but “positive relations with co-workers” came in a very close 3rd.  This is really important when evaluating your company culture.  If you focus on maximizing employee happiness and creating an environment that encourages creativity and collaboration, you are likely to find your employees interacting more with one another and building those internal relationships that are paramount to your companies success.

Below are a few great quotes that focus on how Company Culture helps drive success in your business:

To make customers happy, we have to make sure our employees are happy first. – Zappos

If you are lucky enough to be someone’s employer, then you have a moral obligation to make sure people do look forward to coming to work in the morning. – Whole Foods Market

No company, small or large, can win over the long run without energized employees who believe in the mission and understand how to achieve it. – Jack Welch

So as you go off this weekend – relax, focus on re-energizing, and be ready to start the week focused not on just what you have to do, but why you love it and what you can do to help those around you love it even more.

Thanks for reading!
