What Makes a Positive Company Culture?

December 16, 2021

The conversation about company culture is one that never ends. Many times, company culture can make or break someone’s commitment to an organization. Employees dedicate over 40 hours a week to their jobs, so learning what they value is critical in terms of building a positive work environment. 

On December 2nd 2021, we launched a 3-day LinkedIn poll with the goal of determining what factors people value most in a positive organizational culture. Within this timeframe, we received feedback from 223 participants and sparked a conversation with professionals on the topic. Check out our findings below: 

21% said they value a work environment where ideas are welcome and heard.

47/223 voters express that it is important when their ideas are welcome and heard. These voters feel most valued when their managers encourage them to share their ideas and thoughts, regardless of their job titles. Being heard represents that higher-level executives are willing to learn the perspectives of employees beneath them.

7% said they value a work environment that inspires them to be creative. 

16/223 voters express that the freedom to be creative is important to them. This was the lowest scoring response, and the majority agree that other factors rank above this. However, creativity is very meaningful to this group of voters, so having the space to implement their creative thinking is key.

25% said they value employers who are cognizant of mental health in the workplace. 

56/223 voters expressed that valuing mental health within the workplace is a significant factor in a positive organizational culture. Prioritizing wellness in the workplace can improve business performance in many aspects. Voters feel that managers who offer support, open communication, and resources create a great work environment.

47% said they value a workplace where there is trust and no micromanagement. 

104/223 voters expressed that trust and no micromanagement is the top factor in creating a positive company culture. Micromanagement and lack of trust can create a stressful environment for employees, eventually leading to burnout or turnover. When managers can offer guidance rather than control, employees will be more productive, loyal, and motivated in achieving their goals.

U.S Recruitment Team Lead, David Salva, participated in our poll and stated in the comments:  “…If we’re not stressed out due to micromanagement, we keep our sanity and mental health. We now have some level of freedom, which will help keep our creative ideas flowing.”
