Workplace culture is a critical element of a successful business. Yet, in the hybrid working environment that blends remote and in-office work, the way that employees see company culture and the way organizations build it is changing.
Given that it plays a significant role in the relationships between employers and employees, Reworked tapped experts to provide their recommendations for creating culture in the hybrid workplace.
WorkForce Software’s Leslie Tarnacki, SVP of Global Human Resources, defined the various aspects of company culture.
“We define culture as something that encompasses the values, expectations and practices that guide employees’ daily actions,” Tarnacki says.
Culture is also highly variable from company to company. For some companies, culture may center around high performance, while it may involve a more laid-back attitude at others.
At her company, Tarnacki says the goal is to maintain a healthy work-life balance while celebrating accomplishments, and provide a platform that encourages communication.
She recommends company leaders conduct regular check-ins with their employees to ensure their wellbeing and continued productivity.
“If employees are struggling, it will usually mean a portion of the business, if not the entire entity, is also suffering,” Tarnacki says.
