What makes a great company to work for?
It always made me wonder what it was that made a particular company better than another to work for. I kept reading about surveys, hearing about claims of being a great place to work. Etc.
But what is the detail?
If the criteria used to measure the results are the basis of success, then it would make sense to at least consider them as a foundation of building a culture. In theory this should then lead to higher retention of staff, lower turnover of staff and better attraction strategies.
So I went to the times 100 best small companies to work for and looked at the criteria. My thoughts are perhaps oversimplified, but what if, what if we built a strategy for each of the criteria, became excellent at them, would that not lead to acting like you were in the top 100 and subsequently having better workforce, the engine of the business?
I believe this can be used from the top through to those leaders of you managing departments. Of course this is not finite, but if it gets you thinking and moving then mission accomplished. Be the best you can be and be the best leader you can be
I have attached an easy reading pdf with the findings.
