In a recent article on Gallup’s website, “3 Daily Actions That Set the Tone for Workplace Culture,” author Craig Kamins writes, “Some workplace cultures motivate employees and fuel performance.
Others, he says, “drain employees’ motivation and make employees feel as though they have no control over their environment nor an incentive to perform.”
According to Kamins, employees’ perceptions about their work culture hinge on their leaders’ words and actions. Three daily behaviors that set the tone for the workplace culture, he writes, and lay the “groundwork for exceptional engagement,” are:
- Be respectful toward employees.
- Communicate what is happening in the organization.
- Promote accountability and fairness.
