What it means to create — and nurture — a culture of wellbeing
One of the most important things you can do for your organization right now is to build an effective workforce culture. It's often said that company culture picks up where the employee handbook leaves off: from the behaviors that determine how a company’s employees and management interact to a guide for decision-making. But a truly effective workforce culture means so much more, especially at a time when employees have been weathering ongoing crises — a global pandemic and civil unrest — and are experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety, stress, and even trauma.
At the best and worst of times, culture is what enables employees to thrive. It attracts, supports, and retains employees. It says, “We care!” It builds community. It’s what creates a sense of purpose, belonging, and balance, and makes your employees want to bring their whole selves work. It’s what inspires them to go “above and beyond” and contribute wholeheartedly to your shared success, even (or especially) when the going gets tough.
