Proof That Positive Work Cultures Are More Productive | OpenGrowth

Positive culture comes from being mindful, and respecting your co-workers, and being empathetic.” - Biz Stone. 

Before we start, give me an answer to a question. Why do people choose to quit jobs? Different people have different answers to this question, but the most common answer is high-pressure and toxic work culture. Isn’t it? According to the American Psychological Association, “ More than $500 billion is siphoned off from the U.S. economy because of workplace stress, and 500 million workdays are lost each year due to stress on the job.”

It is also estimated that stress causes sixty percent to eighty percent of workplace accidents and more than eighty percent of doctor visits. Huh, it is a real problem! 

As CEOs, leaders, professionals, and business owners, we are always looking to create a positive working culture. However, if employees are not working on time, it is a sign that something is fishy in the working culture. Do you know that positive work culture can do miracles? A working culture directly impacts your business growth. Wanna know how? Read the blog to get your answer. Here we go!

To build a positive work culture, it is important to set some boundaries in the organization. The core values of your organization must be the foundation of everything happening at your company. As a leader, you have to dedicate time to ensure that everything is aligned. Your organization's culture will directly impact the growth of your company. Therefore, here we have got some tips you can opt for to create a positive work culture.

Remember, communication can make or break a leader. Therefore, try to communicate openly with members of your organization to promote a healthy work environment. You can ask for feedback and also give them effective feedback for their performances. Communication will make the employees feel more comfortable and it will make it easy for them to confront their issues and problems. 


Provide Positive Reinforcement 

It is a way to praise employees for their hard work and dedication. Positive reinforcement can help foster a positive work culture. You can:

  • Offer monetary bonuses to the employees working selflessly for your organization or to employees that achieve success in their positions would be a great gesture. 

  • Offer catered lunches and provide a collective reward to encourage communication between the employees. 

  • Offer pay raise to the employees showing consistent progress with high quality of work. 


Hire Great Team Members 

You must have the quality to identify a smart person. Therefore, hire great team members for your organization and never be afraid to let the bad ones go. Make sure the employees in your organization are professional and team players. Toxic people not only affect the work culture but also the customers.  


Allow Humor 

Don’t be like  Hitler to your employees. Allowing humor will help you to make a stressful situation more lighthearted. As Dale Carnegie, an American writer and lecturer, once said, “ People rarely succeed unless they are having fun doing  what they are doing.” It helps to:

  • Lighter mood.

  • Reduce stress.

  • Improve mental health. 

  • Build relationships.
