If you’re about worker retention – which any business today should be – then you want to establish a positive workplace that will cultivate and promote employee growth, development, and commitment. That starts by creating an environment that is conducive to new ideas, shared interests, and collaboration on a daily basis. The more you are able to relate with your employees, the more they will be willing to go the extra mile for you and your organization.
Here are the top 5 signs of a positive workplace:
- Positive Values: Making it very clear that you expect positivity and positive shared values between everyone at your organization is very important from the start. State that you want to achieve absolutely everything possible through ethical and honest business processes, while also making a commitment to improving the planet and humanity. Social investment is a great way to demonstrate that you also walk the walk.
- Safe Atmosphere: As we have learned today, unfortunately, many work environments are not considered safe atmospheres by female employees. All employees need to be safe and secure when they are at work, or else they will consider looking for a new job down the road.
- Productivity: Although you don’t want to stress your workers out beyond belief, a healthy amount of productivity will keep them from reaching a level of boredom that is toxic in nature. People want the clock to tick faster than normal when they’re at work, and one way to do that is through sustained productivity. Plus, it will give your employees a sense of accomplishment.
- Transparency: No one likes a workplace that hides things from everyone. Employees want to feel like they’re in the know and included in on the big decisions being made. It helps people feel more confident their job is safeguarded and something they can rely on for years to come. Being as transparent as possible is in your best interest.
- Open Communication: Having clear communication channels open between workers, as well as directly to management, will help undermine any communication breakdowns and mishaps between people and departments. You want employees to feel welcome to share their thoughts and feelings on a daily basis.
