Company culture has become a focus for business owners and leaders who are aware that employees are an important part of success. It’s commonplace, though, to find a company whose value system is defined but has not been applied in the workplace. Since values take time to filter down to employees’ day to day experience, they can be neglected. Values should be implemented in visible ways. Choices range from the layout of office space to how questions for managers are handled.
- In order for a company to thrive, they must have a core set of values.
- Companies like Facebook embody their values, and you can really see it in their work space.
- Much of the actual work can be done by affecting the physical work space a company has their employees exist in.
“It’s not enough to just have values, communicate them, or even to have employees memorize them–values need to be physically manifested in the spaces in which employees work.”
