It’s becoming increasingly challenging to attract the best candidates. And with calls to decrease costs, it can be downright difficult. How can you keep your organization competitive in the drive for top employees?
Make your company culture stand out from the pack.
It’s hard these days to find ways for your organization to really stand out from your competitors. Company culture has been mentioned frequently by job seekers as an important factor in their ultimate career decisions. So, it’s time to look at your organization and see if your culture is in tip-top shape.
Here are 3 questions you should ask yourself to see if your company culture is among the cream of the crop:
1. Does my company offer opportunities to share?
Top employees are looking for businesses where they can share ideas and voice opinions. Even if they fall outside of their specific department or role. To be desirable to top talent, your company should foster a culture where asking questions and making suggestions are encouraged.
2. How does my management team react to mistakes?
The truth is, we all make mistakes. But, how you handle on-the-job mistakes can say a lot about your company’s culture. Do you accept mistakes as an opportunity to learn?
3. How do I treat employees?
No – seriously. How do you, and all of your managers, treat employees. Like valued members of the team? With respect, something that is due to each and every one of us? If you can’t remember the last time you asked a co-worker how his weekend was, or where they went for lunch (small steps that go a long way), you might want to look at tweaking this attitude in your organization.
