IMPORTANCE OF THE QUESTIONS IN THE CULTURE SURVEY
- Focus on Short Term Tasks versus Staff Need
Open communication: Maintain open communication channels with your staff. Understand their needs and concerns, and incorporate their feedback into the work process. This helps build trust and ensures everyone feels valued.
Invest in your team: Allocate resources for training, development, and well-being initiatives. This demonstrates your commitment to your team and fosters long-term growth and engagement.
- How We Respond To Mistakes
Psychological safety: A predictable and supportive response from management fosters a psychologically safe environment. Employees feel comfortable taking risks, voicing concerns, and admitting mistakes without fear of harsh consequences. This environment fosters innovation, learning, and growth.
Job security and trust: Knowing that management focuses on understanding and learning from mistakes rather than blame and punishment enhances job security and fosters trust. This, in turn, increases employee engagement and reduces the risk of turnover.
- Our Acceptance of New Ideas
Motivation and engagement: When employees feel their ideas are valued, they are more engaged in their work and motivated to contribute. This results in a more positive and productive work environment.
Sense of ownership and belonging: Being involved in the decision-making process and having your ideas acknowledged fosters a sense of ownership and belonging within the organization. This strengthens employee loyalty and commitment.
- Do We Talk About and Apply Our Values Statements
Increased engagement and ownership: When employees witness values actively guiding decision-making and behavior, they feel more connected to the company's mission and purpose. This leads to increased engagement, ownership, and motivation to contribute.
Enhanced morale and belonging: Consistent values application fosters a sense of belonging and community within the organization. Employees feel their contributions are valued and aligned with the bigger picture, boosting morale and overall well-being.
- Planning For The Future
Skill development and growth: Understanding the future direction of the company can help you identify the skills and knowledge you need to acquire to stay relevant and advance your career within the organization. You can proactively seek training and development opportunities to equip yourself for future challenges and opportunities.
Decision-making and risk assessment: Knowing the management's plans can inform your own decision-making within your role. You can make informed choices about taking on new projects, pursuing internal opportunities, or even considering your long-term future with the company.
