It’s a stew with ingredients such as communications, compensation, benefits and engagement, attitude and ethos. An organization’s culture might be an abstract asset (or liability), but it has a significant effect on the bottom line.
SnackNation has conducted research to gain more understanding about what contributes to a positive, productive culture and to gauge how American workers feel about their workplace’s culture. It found 10 key insights, starting on an upbeat note. Eighty-three percent of respondents said their company offers plenty of opportunities to grow and advance. Just 28 percent reported having no growth opportunities at work. Seventy-one percent reported being either “happy” or “very happy” at their current gig.
SnackNation found that 61 percent of respondents feel “challenged” at work—which can be a good thing. They cite data showing that employees who feel challenged in their role are nearly “three times more likely to be engaged.”
