More than just an employee survey
TINYpulse discovers how your employees are feeling, and performing
Ready or not, summer is here. With it comes heat, vacations, and typically, a hit on organizational effectiveness. According to AAA, more than one-third of Americans will clock out to leverage paid time off for family vacation this summer. Many Europeans take the month of August off each year for prolonged family holidays. There is no better time of the year to stop and reflect on the health of your workplace culture and the impact culture has on productivity. Before your own mental focus gets diluted by vacation planning, invest in optimizing your office culture by examining three areas: workplace health, workplace connections, and a workplace constitution. Workplace Health How healthy is your organizational culture? Culture drives everything that happens in your company, for better or worse. Whether you’re a small business, a municipal office team, a division of a large company, the headquarters of a multinational organization, or anything in between, take advantage the quieter time to ask yourself these five questions. Honestly assess: Do we provide a work environment that is consistently bright, clean, and inviting? Do leaders and team members enjoy positive, trusting relationships with each other daily? Does our work environment provide safe passage and safe operation 24/7? Do team members know their performance requirements and are they actively engaged in delivering them? Are internal and external customers treated with trust, respect, and dignity in every interaction?
