It’s always refreshing to wake up knowing you’re going into a job that you love and enjoy, but unfortunately, for most people that isn’t the case. If you dread going to your job every day, if you argue with your co-workers or if your boss is ruining your life, then chances are you are not going to be very productive during your 9-5 schedule.
Company culture can have a massive effect on morale and work ethic and can even change how people feel about their chosen career path. If you’re not happy at your job, not only will it show in your productivity but it can also hinder company growth extremely. Changes in this culture can be minor or major. They can occur when an integral part of the team leaves and is replaced or when a small part of the company policy changes.
At Idea Harvest we are trying to build a culture that is different from corporate America. We want people to be able to do what they love from wherever they hang their hat. The goal for any job should be that employees enjoy coming to work every day, and that is what we strive for. We hope that they have fun on the job while still being able to get their work done and be productive, and many factors can influence this. It helps when no one in the office is competitive, but instead, everyone is rooting for the other person’s success and a company that is aligned with your goals as well as your co-workers goals will help achieve success for everyone involved and ultimately widespread positivity around the office.
It is important when trying to create a more upbeat morale that you just listen. Listen to those around you—co-workers, consumers, advertisers, editors and news/articles written about your company. This will lend hints as to what your company culture is really like and can lead to constructive changes.
