When the efforts to create a best place to work are in sync with the needs of the work culture you will find that this is a place where you trust the people you work for, have pride in what you do, and enjoy the people you work with.
What makes a High Performance Work Culture (A Best Place To Work?)
Any company, division, team, or workgroup can be a high performance culture.
The Great Place To Work Institute’s major findings of 20 years of research – shows that trust between managers and employees is the primary defining characteristic of a high performance culture. At the heart of our definition of this culture – a place where employees
“trust the people they work for, have pride in what they do, and enjoy the people they work with” – is the idea that a high performance work culture is measured by the quality of the three, interconnected relationships that exist there:
The relationship between employees and leadership/management
The relationship between employees and their jobs/company
The relationship between employees and other employees
The evaluators of the Best Places To Work should be assessing more of this than the things they are defining as the the key elements –ie benefits, facilities and flexibility…all important …in my opinion second to what I have detailed above!
