Employees who enjoy and thrive in their workplace culture are happier, more productive, generate more revenue, become better leaders, and are ultimately better employees. So how do you create a “best place to work” culture, and cultivate this happiness for the people who work under you? Deb Boelkes, interviewed by John Golden, answers this question.
This expert sales interview explores:
- Why relationships influence culture
- Knowing your employees
- Overcoming modern-day challenges
The Importance of Relationships:
The organizations that find success are those that focus on building relationships with the people within the organization.
Really Know Who Works for You
It’s important to really know the people who work for you, and let the people who work for you get to know you. Not everyone has the same version of success.
Challenges in Modern Day:
Building a “best place to work” culture is different in modern-day then it was historically. The larger a company gets, the more separated employees and leaders get in terms of physical connection. With people working in places all over the country, all over the world even, it introduces a lot of different cultures, norms, expectations, and other differences that can be a hurdle to unify an organization.
