How do we define good company culture? To put it simply, company culture is the personality and soul of a company. It circumscribes the day to day working of the organization, employee handling and of course the company goals.
The company culture in oil and gas companies has changed over the years. It has evolved to be more inclusive of genders and also of diverse cultures and religions. Many millennials are still of the opinion that companies can
have a better workspace, their bosses can be more reciprocative of their work and that they are given more responsibilities. This blog is a glimpse of the outlook of a good company culture in 2019.
Overview of a good company culture in 2019
It is a dismal scene where most companies give meager holidays and have absolute disregard for most people who go on a holiday. Holidays are to be given so that most workers can rejuvenate and come back happier. For example, there are slump periods where most companies in that particular country or worldwide doesn’t function and yet some odd worker is called in for the sadistic pleasure of their boss! In 2019 most companies are changing their ways and making sure holidays are given due importance.
LEAD BY EXAMPLE
Most leaders, even today are willing to have a high attrition rate rather than change and adapt to the new workforce. The leaders still believe in profits and cost cutting only, which leads to giving out a negative image of the company. 2019 needs a few leaders to lead by example.
Companies still believe that employees are a variable assets. But companies need to focus on sponsoring and mentoring their employees because the cost is low but the return on investment is high. Slowly companies are seeing the benefit and starting to invest in the same.
A flexible schedule is a boon for more people than companies can imagine. With a higher number of nuclear families, flexible schedules are catching on. It is beneficial to a working mother/father, or a student who needs to pay his/her fees etc.
COMMITMENT TO EQUAL PAY
This is by far the most important and crucial element of 2019 that a company should have. Many women still aren’t paid as per their male counterparts and it is an issue that most companies have started to address.
