Organizational culture exists within every business and non-profit across Alabama. Businesses in the same industry, selling the same products, can be completely different based on corporate culture. As Dale Carnegie Training has discussed in the past, employee engagement drives the health and wellness of every company. Employees who are engaged in daily work activities are visible, voice their ideas and opinions in a positive way, and create opportunities for success.
For leadership today, in this fast paced and ever changing economy, a healthy culture is a “must have” to promote a sense of collective belonging, resource development, and the sharing of values.
A positive engaged culture promotes:
The best talent is never easy to find, and savvy job seekers will research the cultures of organizations they would love to be hired at, long before they are in front of the recruiter in the interview. These prospects are looking for clear goals, work flexibility, training, and common purpose. It is important for every business to use the openness of corporate culture to promote brand and image awareness. In this social media world, it just makes sense to make the culture easy to find in searches.
The ingredients of finding the right talent, training and motivating, building trust with communication, and building loyalty and retention, are all found within the wellness of culture.
Dale Carnegie Training has often discussed the strong relationship between organizational health and employee engagement. How to Win Friends and Influence People is the foundation business book for finding success in both life and work. It is well worth the read again and again as leaders develop fundamental techniques to grow and support others. It all begins with opportunity.
