Creating a organizational culture that cultivates the best of your employees, while keeping customer service an absolute priority, can start with simple signs and icons that set the tone before an employee or customer walk through the door.
Today’s modern workforce is far more emotionally complicated than in the past. The previous generation’s men got up, went to work, stopped by the pub on their way home and complained about their bosses at the dinner table.
These days, men and women alike go to work looking for more than just a paycheck.
They go to work looking for value in the time they spend in their cubicle or office. The concept of self-worth, personal achievement and opportunity are the new virtues associated with modern employment. Managers are tasked with not only nurturing the professional development of the workforce but also creating a workplace culture that is geared towards personal achievement.
It sounds almost too simple, but designating Employee Parking Spots is the first step towards making employees feel valued. I remember the first time I had the opportunity to park my car under an Employee of the Month Sign, or the first time I had the opportunity to see my name in front of my Parking Space. I even took a picture and sent it to my wife.
I remember feeling very appreciative of the small recognition. I also remember feeling the responsibility of living up to that achievement. It’s a simple and inexpensive gesture that can make the difference between a disgruntled employee who is doing just enough to not get fired and an employee that you’re getting the best from, even when you’re not monitoring their work.
Building this type of organizational culture has effects that reach past our offices and cubicles. We continue to feel valued naturally, and carry that sense of purpose to all aspects of life.
