How Corporate Culture Impacts Employee Retention


Here are the 3 reasons why your corporate culture is not helping you with employee retention.
►You are not putting culture first and that leaves you focusing on strategy while your people become more unhappy.
►When people are not satisfied they leave and you suffer from turnover (starting with your best people).
►You struggle with making your goals as good people leave and you get frustrated with the rest of the organization. "Beatings will continue until morale improves" becomes how you manage people and the results continue to suffer.
It doesn't have to be this way.
Imagine instead...
►You have the right people on your team and everyone knows the purpose, vision, values and daily behaviors and lives them everyday. 
►You have people all working together toward a common purpose. You lead by example, with a purpose other than money and people follow voluntarily.
►Your company grows and people grow with it and you attract and retain talent easily.
What would that mean for you and your business?
►To have a great company, with content people and lots of growth and profits?
►To enjoy & celebrate growth because you focused on the culture and people first?
►To finally have the time to enjoy your family and to get the work life balance you and everyone deserves.

Company Values Don't Matter...

Company values don’t matter, they matter a lot. United Airlines lost nearly $800 million dollars in one night by not living their values. Efforts in training staff in values, appraising executives and staff on their adherence to values, and hiring organizational experts to help address how values affect corporate performance is extremely important.
Ultimately, our actions as leaders speak much louder than words. Our actions show employees about our values and our leadership skills more than our words ever can. If our actions are correct, they will reinforce the words on the wall. If our actions are wrong, the wonderful words posted on the wall will only make us look more ridiculous.
Do you as a leader know what your values are as a company? Do you live them? If you hesitated at all in answering yes to these questions contact C3.
