We human beings are made up of sentiments and emotions, these traits are carried with us even at our workplaces. The corporate working culture of modern times is very different from what we had in earlier times. Hectic work schedules, deadlines, pressure, etc. are few things which we all have experienced on our jobs or seen in our office.
You must have noticed in some companies employees stick for many years giving the high amount of productivity even if there is work pressure! Now the question is why such a scenario is being seen? Why some companies witness increased employee dissatisfaction despite high salary and perks?
The reason lies in the simple fact that- The Company which succeeds in motivating, engaging and creating a healthy work culture is the place where employees prefer to stay and work. The human touch, positivity, no dirty office politics, understanding, transparent communication between the employees and the management are some good things that motivate the employees to work to their best abilities.
No matter how good the office interior is, free perks, free food, happy hours, high salary, etc. nothing can work for the organization’s favor if there is lack of positive company culture.
Both organizational culture and employees’ productivity level are inter-related. It would be right to say that good management and productivity are closely associated with each other. Motivation is the base for productivity which comes with good office climate. Organizations desirous to convert their fragile office atmosphere into the long-lasting and enduring culture, then they should look at the below suggestions
1. Clarity in the organization
The employees need to have a sense of involvement in a company’s plans and objectives. A company should involve them or take their suggestions while any goal-setting or planning procedure. This makes them feel responsible and not just a layman.
2. The Management Style
The management style should complement the organization’s culture. One cannot use an authoritarian style in a democratic culture. The output would be disastrous! In an authoritarian culture, the employees are not allowed to question or discuss if they face any constraints, such things build up dissatisfaction, which ultimately leads to job quitting.
3. Human Resource Development
Employees feel happiest in the companies that give them an opportunity to progress and develop themselves to their full potential. The company that holds a selfish and arrogant attitude towards the employees fails to retain them.
4. The Payment
The compensation system should neither be too positive nor too negative, it would backfire on the organization. Develop a payment system which is competitive, equitable and in connection with employees’ performances.
5. The vitality of the organization
Vitality of any organization is defined by its adaptability to the changing conditions and strength of the goals. This means there is some provision for employees to commit any mistakes. The system should be such that it motivates the employees to take risks and work for the betterment of the organization.
