Why workplace culture is vital today more than ever

January 2017


Common sense …  

It makes sense that a happy and unified work  environment will perform better than an  unhappy and divided one!   True?


The ‘doing what needs to be done’ trap... Many organisations know this but still get too  focused on ‘doing what needs to be done’ to  achieve results that … working on their culture becomes a low priority! Sound familiar?  


What is needed?  

An understanding and acknowledgment that  the essence of achieving success is …  

Having a positive team culture!  


6 reasons why workplace culture is vital more than ever 1. Aids in the retention and recruitment of staf 2. Adds motivation for people to integrate work into their 24/7 lives 3. Nurtures a mentally healthy workplace 4. Creates team harmony and unity 5. Increases productivity 6. Leads to profitability or viability  


1. It aids in the retention and recruitment of staf

  • If you have a strong team culture, existing  staff will see a future in the business and good  people will apply to be part of it.  • It will not only reduce the costs involved in  the continual recruitment and training of staff,  a great culture will ensure you attract the best  people.


2. It adds motivation for people to integrate work into their 24/7 lives • We now live in a close to 24/7 business  environment where people blend their  professional and personal lives into one.  • Thus if we don’t enjoy our work environment,  the motivation to work these longer hours will  drop resulting in lower productivity and poorer  performance.  


3. It nurtures a mentally healthy workplace

  • The more happy that employees are in the  workplace, the more positive their mental  health.  • Recent studies show that a mentally healthy  workplace will produce high staff retention,  increased productivity and reduced costs in  absenteeism and compensation claims.


4. It creates team harmony and unity • Every workplace today, with the exception of  sole traders, relies on team units for a business  function.  • They may be small or large but, regardless,  there needs to be team building, harmony,  cohesiveness and unity for the team and  ultimately business to succeed.


5. It increases productivity • Quite simply, happy staff are more productive  staff!  • Even the time spent to nurture fun in the  workplace such as corporate team building  activities, social events, corporate training days  and in-house competitions is time well spent for  the productivity it will enhance.


6. It leads to profitability or viability   • Achieving all of these outcomes collectively  will lead to financial viability.

• This shows how important culture is for the  bottom line – both reducing costs and  increasing revenue.
