Cultivating Work Culture

  1. Gather qualitative and quantitative input at all levels (surveys, one-on-one meetings, and regularly scheduled feedback). Use data to guide you into fostering a safe environment for your employees.

  3. Values are the bedrock of your culture and every single person should know your values by heart and reflect it in their work.
