The Power of a Positive Workplace

With a Look Inside the Culture at PeakActivity

What Does a Positive Culture Look Like?

Trust / Support

Trust in leadership and trust in employees can be found in positive cultures, and should not be underestimated. When employees know that their managers and/or teammates have their back, it provides the support needed for creativity and risks. And when employees face challenges such as accidents, illnesses, or personal tragedies, an understanding and supportive work environment can help ease anxiety and reinforce commitment.

Confidence / Pride

A positive workplace culture can sometimes be identified by the amount of confidence and pride that employees show for their job or company. In a positive environment, leaders have confidence in their team’s abilities and, likewise, employees have confidence in their leader’s direction.

Productivity / Engagement

It’s no secret that a positive workplace environment is a productive one. In a negative environment, employees don’t want to come to work; but in a positive environment, employees are excited about coming to work and are highly engaged.

Communication / Teamwork

In a positive workplace, you’ll find communication and teamwork. Leaders set clear expectations, and employees understand what is being asked of them. People talk about ideas and bring up issues before they become problems. Employees communicate to improve their teams and speak positively to one another.

Onboarding / Training

Onboarding is a big indication of what to expect from a company’s culture. In a positive environment, new hires are guided through their responsibilities and necessary processes. Good employers invest in good hires, and that starts on day one. And, in a positive workplace culture, training is an ongoing commitment. If a company is proud to offer their employees opportunities for professional development, they likely have a positive workplace culture.

Benefits of a Positive Workplace Culture

Productivity

If it’s not obvious by now, positive workplaces are productive. Employees understand their role and the importance of their work, and they know whom to ask for help.

Excellence

Employees who work within a positive culture are empowered to think independently and make smart decisions. Given their supportive environment and ongoing training, it’s easy to understand why employees would feel empowered in their roles.

Retention

Happy employees don’t leave. And, if they do, chances are they leave on good terms. A positive workplace that fosters a culture of employee satisfaction will help retain your best employees and keep your team moving forward. Happy employees don’t leave.

Opportunities

In a positive work environment, employees see opportunities instead of problems. When issues arise, there is a focus on collaboration and creativity that leads to finding a solution. In a negative environment, issues are more likely to prompt blame or frustration, turning opportunities into obstacles.
