A recent article, Bringing Big Company Culture Wins to Smaller Teams by Amanda Mock says that company culture matters regardless of business or its team sizes. It’s a foundational element to expanding your business in today’s world.
It’s easy to look at companies like Google that provides free meals, permits you to bring your dogs to work, and gives you vacation days up to ninety days a year and struggle to be able to do that with a smaller more dependent team. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be just as creative and giving to your company culture, building a more productive workflow, reliable environment, and a place where talents want to be.
Here’s how to create big company culture to your small business.
Understand employees’ stress in work environment.
Understanding stresses in your team and asking their opinion on what can be done as a group to benefit the environment in agile offices doesn’t only give team members a chance to be heard, it lets you solve problems creatively. This lessens frustration in the work environment.
Know the stress in their personal lives.
Benefits like flexible work schedules and rides to work fix the very things that add stress to their lives.
For instance, daily commutes are terrible, so providing a shuttle may lead to employees showing up in team office space less stressed and ready to handle more challenging tasks earlier in the day.
Instill more responsibility and independence.
Allowing team members to work on their ideas and then creatively express how they may improve the company gives them a chance to feel not only heard but instills responsibility and affirmation.
