Company Culture: How To Tell If You Have It
“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”
How can an employer tell if their office has a healthy and happy company culture? We’ve got some ideas.
You are constantly receiving LinkedIn messages and emails asking about open positions. Word travels fast. Your current employees are your best recruiters.
- People want to work there.
Look around. Do people seem happy? Are they smiling? Is there an awkward or tense energy in the bathrooms or break rooms? Take the pulse.
You care about and understand how important internal communications is to a company. You may even have a whole team dedicated to this very topic.
Nothing can be more toxic than gossip. That’s why you don’t tolerate or encourage it – this is where a strong internal communications team comes in handy.
- Your employees are happy.
Your team leaders aren’t taking credit for everything and they certainly aren’t putting down their subordinates. They want to see entry-level hires become mid-level associates and beyond – even more, they encourage future leaders without fear of losing their own jobs.

- Your current leaders empower future leaders.
