Creating a Workplace Culture People Love
Improving workplace culture is a thorny issue for most business leaders. It’s something that they probably know is important, but can’t quite get a handle on. Finance, strategy, product development, operations – those are the tangible, measurable elements of their business. But Culture? That’s the definition of the “soft stuff,” the stuff they probably skimmed over in business school, the stuff that makes their eyes glaze over whenever speakers bring it up at conferences. Source However, more and more leaders are learning it’s no coincidence that the biggest, best, and most innovative companies also happen to have great cultures. In fact, so often these companies are great precisely because they have phenomenal workplace cultures. While most business leaders probably know a good company culture when they see one, defining what it means to have a good culture is a bigger challenge. Actually developing a strategy for creating one is a different story altogether. Culture isn’t a one-size fits all solution. Workplace cultures take many forms, and can mean different things to different organizations. They also evolve over time as businesses change or as they grow. That being said, company culture certainly doesn’t happen by accident. Culture is a deliberate practice, and there are clear, actionable steps you can take to guide the direction of your company’s culture in a way that benefits your employees, customers, and shareholders. In the following guide, we’ve compiled the best, most actionable tips from the smartest companies with the best, most innovative cultures so you can take their learnings and apply it to your business. Consider this is your one stop shop to learn how to improve your workplace culture and help your business go from good, to great, to awesome. Chapter 1: How a Strong Culture Will Boost Your Bottom Line In functional terms, your company’s culture is the sum total of the beliefs and behaviors that guide interactions between employees and other key stakeholders. It manifests in observable things like hours, dress code, benefits, workspace, turnover, hiring, and customer care and satisfaction. But culture is also something less tangible – it’s a feeling or a vibe, the energy people bring in each day, the language they use, the mindset they adopt, and the methods they use to solve problems. There’s a strong business case behind developing a vibrant, healthy, and productive culture, as it affects everything from the overall health and quality of life of your employees, to retention and hiring, to your company’s product, brand, and customer service – and therefore, your profits. Here are some of the best resources for understanding culture and why it’s important.

Tanner Chapter 2 – Incorporate Wellness Initiatives to Maximize Morale and Productivity Studies show that wellness has a direct correlation with things like turnover, morale, and productivity, and therefore must be considered when cultivating a stellar workplace culture. The key isn’t to offer one-off perks, but to develop a holistic wellness culture that focuses on both the mind and body, and incorporates fun and a little friendly competition. Nutrition should also always be top of mind when thinking about wellness, and providing access to healthy snacks is an easy way to achieve this.

Although it seems like another one of those fluffy, intangible ideas, it can actually be measured – by the likelihood that an employee would recommend working at his or her company to a friend. Engaged employees work harder, are more productive, are more innovative, and are the ones you want on the front lines in moments of crisis. Employee engagement and culture go hand in hand. Engagement will foster a positive culture, and vice versa. So exactly how do you engage your employees?

Implications of Stress @ Work
Can stress actually cost you money? We think so. But it’s not just us. Research shows that employee stress is at an all time high, and it’s leading to increased costs among organizations. Employees are working longer hours and have more responsibilities, in an uncertain economy. Extra sick days, carpal tunnel (καρπιαίος σωλήνας), and worker’s compensation claims are all stress related, and end up costing you more money. Research in workplace stress found that physically, stress causes: headaches,backaches, eye strain, neck pain, lowered resistance to infections, high blood pressure, ulcers and heart disease. Emotionally, stress causes : depression, anxiety, poor concentration, irritability and anger. One in five employees report taking a sick day to relieve stress Link Repetitive motion, such as grasping tools, scanning groceries, and typing, resulted in the longest absences from work among the leading events and exposures – an average of 17 missed workdays. Link According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly two-thirds of all occupational illnesses reported, were repetitive stress injuries to the wrist, elbow and shoulder. Over 70% of workplace injuries are caused by repetitive motion. Link Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that repetitive strain injuries are the nation’s most common and costly occupational health problem, affecting hundreds of thousands of American workers, and costing more than $20 billion a year in workers compensation. Bursitis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are the two most expensive worker’s compensation claims, both can be decreased through regular massage. Link Carpal tunnel claims are the most likely claims to transition from medical-only to lost-time, with the probability of such a transition being approximately 34%. Link Carpal Tunnel ranks second overall in terms of total incurred financial losses and lost time from work. Link Carpal tunnel syndrome results in the highest number of days lost among all work related injuries. It takes at least 27 days to recover from, which is longer than it takes to recover from a fracture or amputation. BLS Article Link According to OSHA, Musculo-Skeletal Disorders (MSDs), such as carpal tunnel and tendonitis, account for $1 of every $3 spent on Workers Compensation. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, MSDs accounted for about one third of all workplace injuries and illnesses requiring time away from work. BLS Article Link
Meaningful ways to Inspire Employees and Increase Satisfaction
As an HR professional, do you ever think how much easier your job would be if all of the employees were satisfied? If all the staff you interact with loved their jobs, you’d probably love yours more as well. While there are some employees that are determined to be ‘difficult’ at work, most employees would appreciate your efforts to make them happier on the job. Employee attitudes typically reflect the moral of the company. In areas of customer service and sales, happy employees are extremely important because they represent the company to the public. Satisfaction, however, is not linked solely to compensation. Sure, a raise or benefits will probably improve employee contentment, at least temporarily, but small, inexpensive changes can have a long-term impact. Especially in Greece, where raising financial benefits are difficult as we speak, the need to deliver messages of appreciation and find practical ways to support your staff is greater than ever. Source: Job Science.com | INC.com √ Recognition & Rewards Employees enjoy an atta-boy and it need not be a public show to mean something to employees. Encourage supervisors and managers to acknowledge employees deeds on a daily basis. Getting Started Implement a formal program company-wide to recognize top achievers in every job category. Healthy competition can boost morale, encourage hard work and increase satisfaction and retention. √ Positive Work Environment An upbeat workplace is a necessity. If the workspace isn’t positive, you can’t expect the workers to be. Encouraging one another, avoiding micromanagement, giving positive feedback and ensuring criticism is constructive are all ways to keep the environment a place where employees can do more than survive – they can thrive! √ Give Employees More Control «Happiness is affected by [employee’s] sense of control over their lives”. Employers should look for ways to give employees more control over their schedules, environment, and/or work habits. Getting Started Employers could offer alternative work schedules such as flextime or telecommuting. Employers should also encourage employees to customize their workstations. This could include décor and/or equipment. In addition, studies show that certain colors or décor can improve happiness. √ Stop Wasting Time Tight deadlines are another major sources of stress for many employees. Employers can ease this stress by freeing up more time. Getting Started Make meetings shorter and more efficient. Consider tricks that sound silly but are actually effective such as having a meeting with no chairs. People will be more likely to stick to the necessary agenda when they have to stand the entire meeting. √ Break Up Routines Surprises add spark to all areas of life, including the workplace. The keys are breaking up the routine of the workweek, promoting socialization, and demonstrating your appreciation. Getting Started You can occasionally bring in a special treat such as coffee or baked goods. Small gestures show employees that you appreciate their time. Host a Wellness event with our On-Site Massage Therapists, alongside our Nutritionists and educate them on better eating habits. √ Promote Good Health Poor health is not only damaging to employees, it is detrimental to businesses. Chronic stress has a variety of negative side effects such as weight gain, lower immune system, increased risk of disease, and fatigue. Employers should encourage employees to reduce stress levels and improve their overall health. Getting Started The first step is to educate employees on health topics. Provide reading materials or offer seminars. People can’t make positive changes if they don’t know what to change. Once employees know about health topics such as stress, exercising, and healthy eating, start a health related program. We can share with you the knowledge and ideas WorkWell has on these topics. √ Give Employee Wellness a Boost Being healthy and stress-free is another key aspect of happiness. Employers can do well to invest in employees’ health by promoting wellness programs at work. Nutrition, fitness, and stress reduction are the basic framework for a wellness program at work. Getting Started That means healthier food options, encouraging fitness with our on-site yoga n pilates and incorporating meditation, mindfulness, and massage services at work.
