WORKPLACE CULTURE; WHY IT MATTERS

Great workplaces with a great corporate culture are more financially successful than their peers. Research has proven that culture influences organizational performance. Great workplaces have lower employee turnover than their competitors and may recruit top talent that fits their culture and needs.
Organizations that succeed will rethink employee engagement and develop an employee-centric work environment. These may result in top-quality customer service and innovative products/services that lead to their overall financial success.


Here are the four Emerging trends for workplace culture:
1. Flexible work has become permanent: Employees who have been working from home through the pandemic have come to agree to a hybrid schedule. Employees want flexibility from their employers to maintain the new work/home balance and productivity they have come to enjoy. Prioritizing flexibility also demonstrates that employers value their employee’s health and well-being. To recruit top performers, embracing a flexible workplace culture will be essential.
2. Employee Recognition: As we enter hybrid and remote work, employers will have to redefine employees’ visibility in the workplace. These may include building trust and leveraging data that provides more insight into employee engagement and performance. One key driver of employee engagement is recognition. Employees need to feel appreciated to be satisfied and productive. By creating a workplace culture that celebrates employee recognition, organizations will attract and retain top talent.
3. Employee Development: Employees want to broaden their skillsets. Without opportunities for advancement, employees can feel stagnant and unchallenged. By facilitating professional development, employers ensure their teams remain at the forefront of industry trends and best practices. While this makes employees more valuable, it also gives the organization a competitive edge. Another benefit is that employees who receive ongoing training are more likely to stay with the organization. When organizations invest in their employees, their abilities, engagement, and retention rates grow.
4. Technology: Technology should be well-integrated with the organization’s culture, Applications must be personalized, integrated and easy to use. Employees’ believe advanced technology will improve their work experience, even in organizations where it has eliminated jobs. For instance, the use of meeting Apps like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Goggle Meet etc., has ensured constant interaction of colleagues and established a greater connection within the organization.

Organizations that succeed will rethink employee engagement and develop an employee-centric work environment. These may result in top-quality customer service and innovative products/services that lead to their overall financial success.
