The Covid-19 pandemic caused a significant number of layoffs and firings. As companies reorganized and restructured roles and responsibilities, some individuals likely felt overwhelmed and overworked. As the pandemic cases have dropped and businesses have reopened and expanded staff, now is the time to invest in your team. If you want to rebuild a high performance culture in your workplace, leadership needs to implements processes and instill confidence in their employees.
- Establish a Clearly Defined Vision
If you want your team to be on board and buy into your business objectives, they need to be clearly defined and expressed to your team. Managers that share their vision and take feedback from employee contributions will help people understand their clear roles within the company and the trajectory of where the company wants to go.
2. Get to Know Your Team
- What motivates your staff’s behaviors?
- What are their interests and talents?
- Is their current position utilizing their talents?
- Are there opportunities for growth and development?
- Are there advancement opportunities?
- Are they being compensated fairly?
If leadership isn’t invested in developing their team or curious about their staffs’ business goals, you might lose your top performing members. Meeting regularly with your employees in group settings to train and establish processes for growth will help build a culture of collaboration and teamwork. Meeting with employees’ one-on-one is vital to keeping your employees engaged in the company. If they’re bored or dissatisfied in their position, they won’t produce effective results for the company. Recognition in private and group settings will build confidence in your staffs’ efforts.
3. Create Opportunities for Individuals to Overcome Personal Barriers to Change
If you want your company culture to be communicative, collaborative, and adaptable, you need to push your employees to grow. Listening to employees’ goals, knowing if they plan to be at the company in a short term or long term position will help them have directives and goals to work toward. Leadership should do what they can to help their employees challenge themselves and establish new skills. An approach that allows employees to reflect and recognize what motivates their behaviors and efforts will help set them on a path of growth.
4. Gather Employee Feedback
If processes aren’t working, the company isn’t optimized for efficiency. Promoting open communication is a key element for creating a high-performance company culture. Transparent feedback will help company leadership learn how employees feel about the company’s culture and share opinions on anything that needs improving. This will help leadership review the broken processes and work to improve and adapt processes for growth. Knowing that leadership will hear employee concerns will establish trust and empower them to offer ideas for growth.
