The Importance of Company Culture

Company culture shows the values, decisions, and behaviors of the founders and employees in a company.

It’s important for founders to actively build the company culture.

This is done primarily through the people you hire and the decisions you make.

Building the right culture will go a long way to achieving startup success.

Here are some key areas impacted by company culture:

Employee engagement — employees in a strong company culture that matches their values have a higher level of engagement.

This translates into higher-quality work.

Productivity — engaged employees generate a higher level of output.

This translates into higher profitability.

Reduced turnover — engaged employees stay with the company longer and typically leave only for non-work reasons. 

This translates into a more stable workforce.

Recruiting — engaged employees make it easier to recruit new employees as they look for those who match their values.

This translates into a lower cost of hiring.

Consider these benefits in fostering your company culture.
