Company culture is an important factor to consider when choosing a company. Many people make decisions on where they choose to work based on the culture within the workplace. Company culture affects day-to-day within a company and if employees are able to learn and develop within a company. Jen L’Estrange was recently featured in an article published in Real Simple. She speaks on the effect company culture has on employees, and gives you questions to ask during interviews to gain insight on a potential employer’s culture.
Great workplace culture is any organization where employees feel safe. By safe, I of course mean physical and social safety, but I also mean safe to try things that are new and different. Safe to innovate. Safe to fail miserably, get back in the game, and still be OK. Safe to learn and grow.
