“A strong culture always ensures that employee understand what is expected from them and what they are working towards,” Setiya said
“A HIGH performance company culture has behaviour and norms that lead an organisation to achieve superior results by setting clear business goals. Thus, your culture works as DNA and backbone for your organisation,” said Roshan Setiya, Senior System Engineer, Amazon (Seattle, USA). He was addressing the ‘Wisdom Hour’ organised by Vidarbha Management Association (VMA) on Sunday. He delivered a detailed talk on the topic of ‘Employee engagement and work culture’. Setiya further said that defining employee’s responsibilities, creating a trusting environment, and encouraging employees to continuously grow and re-invent themselves are some major aspects of high performance company culture. Setting best practices and culture not only boost employees moral but brings in the much needed discipline at workplace. Let the employees clearly know about the company’s mission, vision, values and expectations from them, so that they can explore for themselves and company too.
This paves away for innovation and creativity and a healthy completion among employees, Setiya pointed out. “Employee engagement refers to how employee feels about their culture and jobs. A strong culture always ensures that employee understand what is expected from them and what they are working towards,” Setiya said. “Engaged employees are more likely to stay happy, motivated and committed to your company,” Setiya added. To keep employees engaged, Setiya suggested some strategies that can help. The strategies may include weekly/ monthly review meetings, informal celebrations, employee of the month - culture for motivation etc.
