Company culture: Growing a productive workplace

Have you ever considered the value of company culture in reaching your long-term goals?  

At EKW Group, prioritising our employees isn’t just a formality – it’s at the core of our values. We’re dedicated to cultivating a dynamic and inclusive workplace culture that serves as the foundation for employee growth and fulfilment.  

Cultivating a positive work atmosphere that promotes collaboration, innovation, and employee wellbeing ultimately drives your organisation toward its goals, whilst fostering a sense of belonging amongst employees.  

Want to know how we do it? We’ve shared our top strategies to create a culture where employees feel valued, engaged, and motivated to contribute their best! 

Establishing clear communication 

Establishing and maintaining effective communication channels among team members, departments and management is crucial to maintain productivity. Through regular communications via emails, team meetings, and general catch ups around the office, employees are better equipped to understand their roles and contribute effectively to their department.  

Additionally, clear communication helps management and HR identify any discrepancies or inefficiencies early on, allowing for timely interjection and prevention of larger issues. We are strong believers that adopting clear communication channels from the outset will pave the way for smoother interactions and enhanced efficiency. 

Promoting diversity and inclusion  

This is a key focus for a lot of companies – and with good reason! All employees should feel included and valued, whatever their background, as this is not just a moral imperative but a legal obligation. Under employment law, it’s against the law to discriminate against age, gender, disability, and other ‘protected characteristics’. As HR professionals, we’re responsible for creating a culture of diversity and inclusion by implementing practices that support and value all employees.  

We like to acknowledge achievements from all our employees through regular posts on socials. This reinforces that everyone within our company feels valued and has the potential to make a difference.  

Training and development  

Investing in employee development is key to encouraging a culture of growth and learning while also boosting retention and productivity. We play a pivotal role in nurturing a continuous learning environment by offering various professional development avenues like training programmes and mentorship initiatives. 

This has been successful across our team, where employees have been encouraged to pursue professional development opportunities. Whether apprentices or full-time employees, all staff should have access to incentives which help cultivate a workplace fuelled by learning and engagement.  

And there you have it – a brief breakdown of what we do to push a positive workplace culture. We believe that maintaining a commitment to fostering a positive and inclusive work environment will place any organisation as a favourable place to work. Enhancing workplace culture isn’t just a goal for us; it’s a fundamental driver of our continued excellence. 

Support with establishing a productive, inclusive and ultimately happy work environment is just one of the services to gain from our outsourced HR services. From recruitment to onboarding, training to engagement, inclusion and transparency, and much more – we can play a pivotal role in shaping your workplace environment. 

Don’t just take our word for it, hear directly from our People and Culture Manager, Eleanor Taylor:  

“Fostering a company culture where employees not only find joy in their work but also feel empowered by supportive managers and granted autonomy over their tasks and responsibilities is paramount. Recognising and celebrating the unique contributions of every individual who joins our team is a cornerstone of our values”
