A toxic work culture can lead to staffing issues by increasing employee burnout and turnover. 95% of HR leaders felt that burnout was contributing to poor workforce retention, and 10% felt that this issue causes over 50% of turnover.
With this in mind, it’s important for organizations to build a healthier workplace culture that aligns with the values of the company and make employees feel respected and happy in the office. There’s no one-size-fits-all culture, so it’s important to build an organizational culture based on your specific organization.
Creating a positive workplace culture isn’t about bringing in lunch for the office or beer on Fridays. It’s about improving teamwork, making every feel valued and respected, regardless of their role, and reducing stress. A positive culture doesn’t just reduce turnover—it can also make employees happier and more productive.
Building this kind of positive culture isn’t necessarily easy, but this infographic from Rider University will help walk you through the necessary steps. Don’t give up—you’ll be amazed by the benefits of improving your workplace!
