Workplace Culture

Fostering a Positive Workplace Culture

In the ever-changing modern workplace culture it has become more challenging than ever to create a common goal between companies and team members.

This has been elevated due to the rise of hybrid and remote working models and for this reason, it is essential for companies to take steps to cultivate a sense of cohesion within their teams.

It is essential for employers to not only build a team of like minded individuals, but also create an environment where people are excited and motivated for the day’s work and long-term ambitions of the company.



Here we take a look at some of the core factors effecting Workplace Culture

Set clear goals

This is an essential component of a high performing team dynamic. Employees must have a clear vision and understanding of what they are trying to achieve and how they are going to do it.

One good framework to set these goals is the SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-Bound) goals framework.

Companies with clear goals and objectives have a 35% higher employee engagement rate than those without.

Employee engagement is closely linked to workplace cultural fit, as it refers to the degree to which employees feel connected to their company’s mission and values



Intrinsic motivations are an essential component to an employee’s long-term ambitions with a company. This means that a person is likely to perform better and be happier in a role when they get a sense of enjoyment and fulfilment from it.

Extrinsic motivators like money and benefits are important, but for long term satisfaction they often aren’t enough as the demands of Ireland’s workforce continue to change in today’s dynamic job market.



The leaders within the organisation are an essential factor in developing this positive environment. Leaders who are open to hearing suggestions from members of their team will create a psychologically safe environment.

This means that people feel comfortable expressing their opinions without fear of facing negative consequences or feedback. This is crucial not only for employee wellbeing, but also for performance as these environments drive creativity.

Stress Management

Stress is a regular part of daily life, but when stress is not addressed and handled correctly it can have negative effects on wellbeing and the environment in the workplace.

Organisations can combat this by creating a workplace culture of support, where employees feel comfortable asking for help from their colleagues or managers when experiencing excess stress.


Recruitment Factors

The right Workplace Culture fit is an essential part of building any team. Everyone on the team must buy into the companies’ values and goals for the overall success of the organisation.

Employees who engage with the long-term vision of the company are more likely to show commitment and loyalty to the organisation.

This ideal fit can include like minded individuals but should also focus on developing a diverse team in order to have access to a variety of perspectives and ideas, therefore creating an innovative environment.
