All employees aspire to work for an organisation with a good company culture. Employees want to work for organisations with a positive workplace environment that promotes inclusion, has strong values and ethics and good practices that help people to thrive. Particularly for those looking to switch jobs, identifying companies with a strong culture is a top priority before deciding to move.
In fact, Glassdoor’s Mission & Culture Survey 2019 found that more than 77% of adults would consider a company’s culture before applying for a role there, whilst over half said that company culture was more crucial than salary when it comes to job satisfaction. So, if employers want to attract, engage and retain top talent, a focus on carving out and maintaining a good company culture will be key.
In this issue, we speak to several companies who appear to be leading the way in this area. For October’s cover story, we spoke to General Mills’ HR Director for Europe & Australia to find out about the firm’s culture and the role that its values played in helping create it. We also share an exclusive Q&A with Salesforce’s VP of Employee Success who talked about ranking highly in Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work UK for 2022, as well as the keys to creating an outstanding culture.
Also inside, is a video feature with Bitly’s Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion to find out more about the organisation’s employee resource groups. We also caught up with our Advisory Board experts to find out what a good company culture looks like.
As ever, we hope that you find the content in this issue useful and informative!
