Why Improving Your Corporate Culture Starts with Employee Feedback

Did you know that employee satisfaction really is the lifeblood of your business’ health?

All organisations – both big and small - are very reliant on how well they function from within. The internal processes and the staff who make it work have such an impact on everything from customer service and branding, all the way down to the bottom line.

Let’s discuss how corporate culture works and why we want to improve it with employee feedback.

Corporate culture has been a focus for business over the decades, however it has become much more in the spotlight only recently as research has begun to show how much it affects

It’s time to prove HR’s impact on business success

Have you noticed that every other department is in full focus, today?

Marketing is setting up leads with fancy content, and the sales team are converting them into profitable long-term clients. Upper Management is running the show, Finance and legal are formulating strategies and the administration team are supporting the whole operation.

What about HR? Well... we’re just doing our thing – seen and never heard. I mean, we’re only responsible for a business’ greatest asset: the staff.

The real problem is, we only have ourselves to blame.

The complex relationship between stress and productivity

Work-related stress is at sky-high levels as employees struggle with constant technological change, unsupportive managers and heavy workloads. An “always on” culture that’s blurred the line between work and leisure time also drives stress levels up – and in some cases leads to burnout.

Strategic role for HR is finally within reach

Are HR professionals just administrators or can they also play a strategic role?  It’s a question that has been hotly debated for many years, but many businesses thought they had found the answer when they adopted the so-called Ulrich model. This handed transactional work to staff in shared services centres, freeing up other members of the HR team to focus on higher value work as experts in recruitment, reward and other specialist areas or as business partners.

Hard data helps drive down employee absence

Employee absence eats into company profits. The problem isn’t just the direct costs of paying workers while they are off sick. When you add all the indirect costs, including lost production and paying for staff cover, absenteeism can consume as much as 15% of an organisation’s payroll, according to one study.

4 Tips to Enhance Employee Assessments

Ahh, employee assessments. That time of year that everyone loves to hate. While employee reviews are scorned by staff far and wide, statistics show that many companies have no inclination of getting rid of them.

So how to improve upon an age-old tactic?
