“There’s no magic formula for great company culture. The key is just to treat your staff how you would like to be treated.” – Richard Branson
These days, we hear of many unique company cultures within the global marketplace that define the work produced by any given organization. Culture is a key factor in determining the quality of the work and the attitude of the employee. It seems that the workplace focuses less on the employee and more on the corporation, which not only has effects on the work environment, but on the personal lives of employees. Many individuals are not pushed to prioritize their families, but their work. When one’s family is pushed to the back burner, their quality of life is affected, creating performance that is anything but their best. However, when one is given the time to recharge and focus on the things that matter most, they can come to work, with a smile on their face, and do their job to the best of their ability.
At Emergn, we foster a culture that cares for the individual and promotes family first. This has created a healthy environment that does not create a rift between family and work, but allows them to exist alongside one another.
In this new year, remember that culture is key and that no business plan, strategy, or vision will allow for better performance than an environment that prioritizes the lives of employees alongside the growth of the organization.
