Missed the Boat on Making Company Culture a Top Priority? Get Onboard Before it Hurts Recruitment Efforts
Culture! It’s bandied about as a buzzword, but it’s no flash in the pan. Its meaning is taking center stage in our current job environment as companies of every size fiercely compete for top talent. These days, culture is everything. It’s the vibe you feel or create when you enter your workspace and it’s how you make your team feel valued, trusted and respected. It’s critically important and trust me when I tell you it is a big (huge) factor when prospective employees consider joining your team.
When we engage with employers to recruit on their behalf, one of the very first things we do is have them tell us about their culture quickly followed by this question: Why would someone want to work here and why do your employees stay? It’s not about free lunches and perks. It’s about driving forces that keep employees feeling engaged and working toward a common goal.
We believe so deeply in the power of culture, we asked three top local executives to share their thoughts about culture’s impact on their organization.
With our focus on forging Talent Acquisition Partnerships and providing Employer Brand Strategy solutions throughout the region and beyond, the subject of culture continues to be top priority. Whether it’s getting the word out about a “hidden gem” company or helping a company define or rethink and improve culture so they can compete, we see firsthand the real and lasting impact culture has on a company and its bottom line.
