When it comes to your company culture, is it non-existent? Ashley Lee, an entertainment, business and culture reporter in New York City explains a lot of companies have a mission and values written down in their business plan, but rarely implement them. In order to be a successful company on the outside, as well as within the inner workings of your business, you need to have a solid and exciting work culture. Take Google, for example. It is constantly voted as one of the best companies to work for because of its stellar culture. Here are a few tips from Young Entrepreneur on how to build a culture like Google:
Don’t skimp on the office décor – Bland walls and cubicles do nothing for your employees. You don’t have to break the bank to build an inspiring workspace. Paint the walls vibrant colors, have board games set up in certain areas, allow employees to work at large tables and couches as opposed to cubicles and desks.
Make your new-hire orientation a celebration – You want your new hires to be excited to work for your company. Orientations littered with nothing but filling out paperwork and listening to rules aren’t exciting.
Create team challenges to motivate employees – Incorporating team challenges into your work environment will not only motivate employees but it will allow them to bond with each other as well. It doesn’t have to be something related to work either. A company softball league, for example, would be a great idea.
Engage employees with learning initiatives – Give employees opportunities to learn through seminars or mentorship programs.
