Since the beginning of the year, workplaces have been struggling with employee retention, hence The Great Resignation crowding up our minds and LinkedIn newsfeeds. Employees are expressing they need more: not just more compensation, but greater flexibility, career growth opportunities, and a company culture that aligns with their passions and purpose.
That’s where a people-first culture comes in. An organizational culture that puts its employees first means it listens and values the needs of its team—a place where a person’s work fills them with a sense of purpose, progress, and belonging. As we approach New Year’s, what better time to start than right now? 🎉
