When you envision what really goes into a great workplace, do you restrict your thoughts to just the location, the facilities available and the technology employed. What according to you, is an ideal workplace built around.
Can Do Attitude
Essentially speaking, it is built on the can do attitude, and there is still more to it, as it is further strengthened by the professional relationships that we actively forge both inside and outside of our organizations.
Better Work Environment
In order to ensure the same, certain things need to be taken care of. A great workplace is committed to providing safe premises for its employees as well as its customers. People working there are really excited about their work, they are quite proud of their organization, and are always eager to make the work environment better.
Repose Complete Trust
They most certainly feel valued for the meaningful work they do, and while doing so they repose complete trust in their leaders and the leaders in turn have complete faith in their employees and empower them in the process.
Another important trait of a great workplace is the diversity you get to witness all along, they are characterized by a team that is truly diverse, as well as inclusive while being reflective of all the customers it serves.
Diversity of Thoughts and Experience
No matter what dimensions you measure diversity in, in its truest manifestation, it surely goes on to make the workplace stronger. And most important of all is the diversity of thoughts and experience it brings about.
Enablement Is the Key
At the same time, enablement plays a big role in making a regular workplace into a great one, here each and every employee is encouraged and empowered to make maximum contribution based on their full potential.
The Core Values
When something needs to be fixed or improved, employees are encouraged to speak up as necessary and make the required contribution as well. Employees need to be aligned as well as committed to the core values for which the organization stands, and the behavior must be directed in such a manner, so as to work together and win as a cohesive single unit– the outstanding team.
People working at such places are a driven lot, they are invariably committed to excellence, and make it a point to lead by example, with the implicit knowledge that, accountability, integrity, as well as great results are not just expected but they are suitably rewarded too.
Art of the Possible
In a nutshell, a great workplace does not just create a fabulous environment, its employees have the freedom to wholeheartedly pursue– art of the possible. The secret in creating a great workplace lies in showing to people that you care about them.
Keep Channels of Communication Open
Keep your channels of communication open, educate your employees, acknowledge they have personal lives as well. Make good use of every opportunity to socialize with the people you work for long hours, but hardly know them beyond work. Only then would you be able to meet the actual people, once in awhile take them to nearby place where they can let their hair down and have some fun.
It is indeed a great way of knowing your folks better, that would curb the menace of attrition even before it rears its ugly head, ensuring peace harmony and stability in the workplace and a smooth functional workflow that benefits all the stakeholders.
