Culture Audit©

In great workplaces, something happens that transcends policies and practices.  It isn’t what the companies are doing, it is how their leaders are doing it.  And one cannot predict that organisations with the most creative practices, the best bottom line, the least stressful jobs or the most generous compensation packages are the ones that employees will most appreciate.

Yes, programs and policies are essential: they are tools that leaders and managers use to systemically create a great workplace that’s aligned with the organisation’s business. But it is the selection and implementation of these practices make the difference in whether these investments become assets or actually detract from a workplace culture

Producing Results

Focusing on high-leverage program areas

Great Place to Work analyses the practices of more than 8,500 companies each year and has identified nine program areas that differentiate the best companies.

Multiplying the success of the benefits and investments leaders do choose to make

Many organisations that on paper have impressive programs, in practice don’t see the benefits of these investments in spite of hefty investments in those programs.  Great Place to Work has found there are five underlying qualities that magnify the success of best company suites of programs: their variety, originality, all-inclusiveness, degree of human touch, and integration with the culture at large.

Creating a systemic, self-perpetuating cycle of workplace and business greatness

Great organisations create cultures in which everyone is inspired and has the opportunity to contribute their talents and the best of themselves. Great Place to Work has found that in the best companies, this isn’t so much a business transaction, as part of a generous cycle of gifts exchanged between members of the organisation.  Applying this approach is the secret to great workplaces’ long-term stability and success.

Evaluating Gaps Between Experience and Intent

Leaders can fundamentally reinvent their approach to effective organisational policies and practices through a complete evaluation of workplace culture by a Great Place to Work® consultant. Great Place to Work will blend an analysis of your employees’ workplace experience, through our Trust Index©Survey, with an assessment of your programs and practices, through our Culture Audit©.

Through this process, consultants identify gaps between the impact your programs are intended to have and their actual influence.  Consultants recommend those areas that will be most critical to invest in to make future improvements and provide insights that help organisation leaders be more effective and efficient at creating a strong workplace culture.  The key is to align benefits and practices with a framework that defines critical program areas and the success factors distinguishing great workplaces.
