How to Foster a Positive Work Environment
Posted on 07/08/2019
In today’s world of online job searching and recruiting, it’s easy for employment seekers to narrow down companies they’re interested in. Websites like Glassdoor make it easy for them by allowing past and current employees to leave company reviews. Studies have found people trust online reviews nearly as much as they would a recommendation from a friend.
That being said, it’s crucial for companies today to create an environment their employees enjoy. Positive reviews will encourage more candidates to apply, giving companies a larger pool to choose from. There are many ways companies can cultivate a positive work culture to keep their employees happy and motivated to leave positive reviews. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.
Let your employees know you trust them.
Encourage clear communication.
Make sure to get to know your employees, as well. When they see you care about their goals and interests, they will be more likely to communicate more clearly with you.
Have a positive attitude around the office.
Show your appreciation.
Hold critiques in a private space.
Listen to others.
Celebrate wins and milestones.
Positive work environments cultivate happy employees, who then write raving company reviews. These reviews help create good buzz for the company. They also attract top-tier job candidates who can continue to make your organization great. Following these tips can help ensure your workplace is somewhere people are proud to talk about even after they leave.
