Company Culture: How To Tell If You Have It

POSTED ON 
April 16, 2018
“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.
  • People want to work there.
You are constantly receiving LinkedIn messages and emails asking about open positions. Word travels fast. Your current employees are your best recruiters.
  • Your employees are happy.
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.
  • Communication is key.
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.
  • There’s no gossip.
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 current leaders empower future leaders.
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.   For more bite-sized brilliance, follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter.
