To begin, employer branding is becoming increasingly vital. Employees are similar to customers. Employees now have more opportunities than they did in the past due to changes in the employment market.

Your company must invest in culture on a regular basis to reap the benefits of an engaged workforce.

Employee engagement is a direct result of a good corporate culture, which is vital.

A high-performance corporate culture is a direct result of employee engagement. Why? Because high-performance cultures clearly define healthy and helpful behaviors and standards.

@benjamin_lucas12 Absolutely, the more engaged your employees are, the more high-performance culture a company will have.

Supportive, optimistic, and proactive cultures are the hallmarks of high-performance organizations. They engage with their staff on a daily basis.

Setting clear corporate goals, outlining staff duties, fostering a trusting environment, and enabling individuals to continually evolve and reinvent themselves are all part of a high-performance culture.

The better employees understand what is expected of them and what they are working for, the stronger a company's culture is.

For any employee to reach peak potential of themselves, I believe the environment and the 'comfortableness' is indeed important.

To give you a small example that I saw within the company I worked. After going remote first during the COVID we saw that people felt a bit disconnected to another teams in the company lacking touch points. Before COVID the office itself served as a glue to connect people across team be it at lunch break / coffee breaks or just passing through someone. Now that we are moving to a hybrid model that is still not mandatory we needed to create a stir so the people and culture manager suggested the team heads to have team days at the office so two days of the week where people come to office in person by their own choice and as team saw that other in the team were going to office and the incentive to see their team pulled them and that also served in re-established cross team communication albeit, slowly. Without our people and culture manager this process would have delayed. I think this example for me shows the value of workplace culture that guides the people working in it and we together as people form the culture which is organic, interactive, team focused and core to the success of the company 🚀.

Love this topic! I guess that the workplace culture is the first thing to start caring about the company branding. You analyze the values, mission, the vision of the company, translate all findings into the company's identity (style, personality, communication), and then you need to think about the activities that will help your employees to understand the vibe of the company. You can try dozens of different approaches, but their style should be the same, otherwise, people will never get what stands behind the company.

I believe that culture is everything. Defining a good culture will raise employee morale and trust in the leadership of the company. At Codiga, we have principles about how employees should perform. One employee mentioned months ago that he was working hard and harder than others. After looking at the statistics, I realized he was performing better than others and gave him a raise and also communicated to the company that what he did was an example for the company. Not only did this move motivate the employee but pushed others to "shine" and be more active.

It goes a long way, as far as determining the overall success and well-being of the company, the people make the company after all. Having a culture fosters a common mindset among the employees. Everyone is headed in the same direction, chasing a common objective. It binds everyone together and everyone sees the company as though it was theirs, so they all commit zealously to it.

Absolutely agree with what people have said here already. Adding to that - creating a healthy workplace culture has become even more important as so many companies went remote. Keeping the team engaged and helping them develop social bonds is key to not only better work outcomes but also a healthier and happier team.

I see a lot of good general culture adived but more specifically I think the biggest reason people might not engage is the feeling that they are talking into the void. You need to positively re-enforce engagement and make sure that people feel heard. I’ve definitely seen people with great insights who don’t bring them up because “Its not going to change anything” Obviously a generally open culture where people do not get put down or shutdown to harshly is important.

Its pivotal, I echo the sentiment of many on this but I also question how do you successfully invest to improve workplace culture without turnover?
The stronger a company's culture, the better employees understand what is expected of them and what they're working toward. Engaged employees are more likely to stay happy, motivated, and committed to your company. Overall, an engaged employee is more. QuickPayPortal

Culture plays important role on how each individual interacts with each other. This not just top to bottom but sideways also. Culture sets up the type of interaction peers have as well how they work. For e.g. A leader who takes the ownership of issues/problem within the organization for this team, his subordinates members do the same for their respective teams. A peers do not engage themselves in small talk the person who wants to also doesn't get engaged into such a thing since he doesn't get the audience for the same. If the leader and team doesn't judge others on basis of their time in and out and doesn't give leverage to those who are working late or long hours but on tasks completed automatically everyone in the team does the same.

We've surveyed millions of people through the Top Workplaces program - the biggest driver of engagement is feeling valued and appreciated. Culture cascades down from the top team - so to really boost engagement the top team needs to take time to tell people they have done a good job. That 10 second slack message saying 'well done' can go a long way! People lower down the organization will start mimicing the behavior of the most senior people.

Companies need to invest the time upfront with employees (at all levels) for training purposes but to also make them feel welcome. This has become critical now remote work is very much the norm. Transparency on goals, expectations and development opportunities from the start will also enhance engagement in my experience.
