Good culture is the ultimate recruitment tool
So how do you build a good culture?
Free food is nice and all, but it's not what people really care about. If you want to attract, hire, and retain the best talent, there's a better way to do it than catered lunch. Because if you want people to invest in you, you have to invest in them.
Good culture starts with how people engage.
The latest research out of Harvard Business Review shows that how your team communicates is the single most important predictor of success. You could have all the 10x engineers in town, but it doesn't really matter if they don't click.
A lot of what makes a team successful is how they engage outside of formal meetings and work duties – in other words, their interpersonal skills and the ways in which they socialize. A well-socialized team influences:
*energy: How individual team members contribute to a team as a whole
*engagement: How team members communicate with one another
*exploration: How teams communicate with one another
It probably doesn't come as a surprise that it's particularly important for creative teams to explore – in order to innovate, they need to be able to connect with new perspectives. We can help with that.
Give your team opportunities to connect.
We offer workshops, off-sites, and community-building retreats for your team to connect with the best in themselves and each other. They'll get to know their colleagues better as they develop important interpersonal skills like empathy, listening, and self-awareness.
We work in partnership with employee resource groups, Diversity + Inclusion teams, Leadership + Development, and other teams to create professional development opportunities and community building experiences for people of all genders.
