Company Culture: Four ways it can help you maintain a high-quality workforce

When it comes to maintaining a high-quality workforce, a positive company culture is the key.

For logistics and supply chain companies, having a positive company culture can not only help you attract and retain top talent, but it can also help your workers have a better quality of life – which can limit injuries, sick days and low productivity.

So, how do you work toward a happier, healthier and more positive company culture? 

Let’s start by defining it. 

Company culture is all the little things your employees experience in the workday, including:

  • Values and ideals
  • Expectations
  • Standards
  • Behavior and attitudes

When your employees know what to expect –and what’s expected of them – it helps drive overall satisfaction and success. A company that knows what it stands for and strives to meet those standards daily is easy to work for and when your employees come to work, they know they will be held to high standards that management is setting — and front-line workers should have high standards for themselves as well. 

Your employees will be glad to meet those standards, because they trust that they matter to you.

At Ignite Industrial Professionals, we believe in respect, integrity, perseverance and service. We work hard for hard workers. 

Our strong commitment to a positive work environment has stood the test of time, as we focus on finding full-time associates for full-time positions in the supply chain. 

We want to work with companies that share these similar values – and we want to send them the workers who align with those values as well.

Practicing these values sets us apart, and we see every day that they help create bonds between employee and employer that last long-term. When a company commits to its employees, the employees strive harder, stay longer, and work harder

One of the keys to a supportive workplace is solid communication, as is employee development and growth opportunities. 

Communication is a key part of creating a more supportive workplace environment. This inclusive environment is essential to recruiting employees who are hard-working and productive. It also makes it easier to retain those employees. 

We also believe in fostering collaboration and at Ignite, we host several opportunities each year to give back to the community that has given us so much.

The bottom line is, when you have a positive company culture, you attract long-term, more productive employees. Top performers are attracted to top performing companies and a welcoming and open culture is key. 

We think if you invest in your company culture, it’ll pay dividends in reduced turnover and employee satisfaction. The investment pays for itself. 

If you are ready to change your company’s culture for the better, we’d love to hear from you.
