how important is company culture when choosing your next job?

In today’s current climate, company culture has a lot of influence. It can be the deciding factor in taking a new job, or the major reason for choosing to move on from an organisation in the first instance. 

From my experiences, company culture has the capacity to influence profit, increase or decrease employee productivity and positively or negatively impact recruitment and retention. When you look for your next job - it is critical to take into account company culture. In this blog, we explore 5 key factors to look out for. 
 

employee retention

Employee turnover is a key indicator of company culture. To put it simply, engaged employees who are acknowledged for their contributions and challenged to continuously grow are far more likely to stay put.

alignment on mission and values

A positive company culture doesn’t just happen. It has to be clearly outlined from the onset and effectively communicated throughout the company.  It is critical for the company's leaders and employees to embrace these values and implement them in their day to day duties and responsibilities. There is an expectation that these values govern your way of working and are branded into all internal and external communications.

leaders are visible and accessible

Leaders who are transparent, accessible, true to their word and see the value in investing in their team will have the support and commitment from their employees. This attitude creates a ‘stronger together’ approach and as such, employees are more likely to feel more aligned to the goals they are working towards. 

comfortable workspaces

The physical space you work in has the capacity to impact your way of working greatly. It can determine how you feel about your job but also your employer.  Workspaces that promote collaboration between different divisions and are equipped with amenities and facilities that people care about are contributing factors to increased productivity and improved morale. 

ongoing professional development opportunities

Positive company culture and having opportunities for employees to grow, advance & gain promotions go hand in hand. This action reconfirms a company's commitment to their employees and creates a stronger sense of culture and community. 

Using a Recruitment Agency such as HR Partners can give you the ability to cut through the noise as a means to gain a really clear picture of how an organisation operates and how positive their culture is.

    Hello everyone, my name is Walter George I am so overwhelmed with joy all thanks to Dr. Wale spell. My Wife  left me for another man a few years back and I was very devastated because I never did anything wrong to her, I was left with my two kids and a job that pays little. I was almost giving up until I saw a testimony online about Dr. Wale and I decided to contact him. I explained my problem to him and he assured me I'll see a positive result after 24 hours, surprisingly my Wife came back the day after the spell begging me to forgive her and promised to never leave. My Wife has been back for 6 months now and we've never had any issues, am glad I didn't doubt Dr. Wale cause he sure can solve any problems with fast relief you can also contact him for help now WhatsApp/Text him: +1(978) 406-9575 or Email him at everlastingspellcast@gmail.com or visit his website  https://everlastingspellcaster.website2.me/

    I want to say a big thanks to Dr. Okosisi for helping me to win the lottery. I won ($1,000,000.00)

    My heart was filled with Joy and happiness when I won the lottery. All thanks goes to Dr Okosisi for his good work he did for me that made me win the lottery. It has been hard for me to earn a living over the years of hard labor and suffering. I always pray to God to help me find a way to hit the lottery, because that was all I put my hope on. I always play the lottery daily, buy different lottery tickets, pay for online tips and others, but all was in vain, no good result, until one day I found this great man Dr Okosisi. On the internet, he is a magic voodoo Doctor, who helps to cast the lottery spell, as was described in the article. I contacted him too because I want to hit the lottery. Dr. Okosis helped me to cast the spell, and behold I won ONE MILLION DOLLARS. Truly you are the best and your spell is genuine and costs no harm. I got my bills paid and my debt cleared. I am making this known to every one of you who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery with a better price, this is the real contact we all have been searching for. Contact him now. WhatsApp number: +1 (901) 235-9551 Email: spellservicetemple@gmail.com
