Companies that cultivate gratitude among their employees are well on the road to building a positive
corporate culture because of the many ancillary benefits that come with gratitude. Gracious people are
more likely to work better in teams and develop trusting working relationships with their colleagues.
Giving people a vehicle to express appreciation for one another in a public forum raises the morale of
the entire group, establishes a positive tone for the week, and helps people feel acknowledged and
valued. These things increase gratitude as well.
Creating a safe working environment is
another thing that has a big impact on a
positive corporate culture. And when we
say safe, we’re not talking about physically
safe (though that’s obviously important
too), we’re talking about one where
respect, trust, and honesty rule the day.
There is nothing more toxic than a workplace
where all of those things are absent.
When that happens, employees don’t care
about each other, don’t attempt to take the
slightest amount of risk for the benefit of a
project or initiative, and don’t work well together
because everyone is worried about
getting stabbed in the back. The best
companies strive to have a safe working
environment where success can thrive.
Lastly, personal responsibility is one of
those traits that should be sought out intensely
in every single interview to prevent
a lack of it within an organization. When
each employee does their part and doesn’t
lean on other employees unless it’s an
emergency, there is a real sense of cooperation
and productivity. No one likes being
taken advantage of, feeling like they’re
working with lazy people, or not having
their time respected. All of these things
can be results of a lack of personal responsibility.
When everyone demonstrates
personal responsibility daily, efficiency, effectiveness,
and positive corporate culture
go through the roof!
