Great corporate cultures don’t just happen — they’re created by the values, rituals, and goals unique to an organization. As a consultant I have been part of many outstanding business environments. Some were so great I didn’t want the work to end. Others were exactly what you would expect in large companies.
I found that the best workplace cultures were inclusive, collaborative, and quick to recognize staff contributions. Those companies made employees feel that they were valued and valued for their efforts. Their culture easily attracted and retained the company’s best employees. It was a pleasure to be a part of them.
