Companies that actively improve their company culture are able to minimize employee turnover, facilitate better relationships with customers, and, ultimately, position their organization for growth.In order to create a company culture that not only attracts the best and the brightest but also helps them achieve their highest potential (while reducing turnover), it’s important to define what makes a workplace great.

Everyone looks forward to the weekend, no matter how much they enjoy their job. But if your employees are dragging themselves into work on Mondays with a cloud of doom over their heads, it should raise a red flag. Sure, salary and benefits attracted them to your organization, but they won’t reach their potential (or stay long) unless you make your company a great place to work. Making your company the place your employees want to be requires taking the time to assess your workplace and determine where you can improve the culture to help you retain that talent and succeed as a business.

A STRONG SUPPORTIVE CULTURE
I’m not talking about the superficial cultures that have become increasingly popular and are defined by having Ping-Pong tables and kegs. A truly strong culture offers mutual support, promotes trust, rewards employees’ efforts, and ensures that employees know their work is meaningful. Leaders need to understand that different approaches work better for different employees, preferably with the involvement (and empowerment) of employees. Remember to communicate clearly and be transparent when making decisions.

PROFESSIONAL GROWTH IS A PRIORITY
Instead of growing employees’ skills to match the companies needs, great companies look for ways to grow the company based on employees’ passions. They continually ask employees what they are interested in doing and how they would like to see their career unfold. You’re not going to transform the workplace overnight, so don’t get rattled by temporary setbacks and keep your eyes on the end goal. Rather than a top-down action plan, integrate the types of practices and behaviors that build trust throughout the organization.

WORK THAT IS CHALLENGING AND ENCOURAGES YOU TO GROW
Since we spend so much time with our co-workers, it’s important to like and respect them. Working with people who are supportive and understanding fosters personal connections and professional growth. People inherently want to be challenged so they can continually grow and learn new skills. Great companies expect their employees to rise to challenges and be completely engaged. Simply putting together a list of company values won’t cut it. These values must be integrated throughout the organization, including the hiring process. If a prospective new hire doesn’t seem receptive to your company’s values or culture, then it’s probably not a great match.

AT&T is great place to thrive. There are so many opportunities to grow, whether in a specialized field or to grow the skills you have. I am amazed at all the development programs they have in place for employees which shows how much they care for their employees' growth.

Umm. I can't pick a single favorite. So, I will give you my top two.

My two favorite things about working for Cisco is:

1. Our inclusive and diverse culture:

Our core values guide us as a company and demand that we take a stand against actions that threaten the equal rights, safety and dignity of our people, both inside our company and in the communities where they live. These values are also part of Our People Deal. Our People Deal is basically a contract that articulates what the company expects from its employees, and what they can expect from Cisco.
It encourages employees to bring their whole selves to work and to create an environment of trust and mutual respect – an environment where our integrity defines and leads us. Where we say what needs to be said and hold ourselves accountable.

We are also ranked #2 on Fortune’s 100 Best Workplaces for Diversity list for 2019- https://blogs.cisco.com/diversity/diversity-award

The true inclusivity and diverse culture which is imbibed in us helps us to create a safe workplace for everybody.

2. Giving back initiatives:

The number of ways Cisco encourages giving back is endless. It is an extremely important aspect of our culture that all of us are the flagbearers of.
One of the examples is Time2Give. Through Time2Give, Cisco employees are given paid time off to volunteer and help make a positive impact. Only in the fiscal year of 2019, 447935 hours were volunteered by employees, US$25.5 million were donated through employee donations and matching gifts.

Then, of course, there are other favorite things about working for Cisco.

For instance, We are the #1 World’s Best Workplace. Where else would you wanna work?

I have worked for AT&T more than 20 years, one thing I like the most is that there are so many different jobs for each individual. Take myself for example, I have worked in Call Center, Information Technology, and Human Resources. The tuition reimbursed program is also a plus for many people. I got my master's degree with the that program.

My favorite thing about working for AT&T are the opportunities in many different areas to work. With the development programs the Company has in place, pivoting to a new role or area is within anyone’s reach, if they put forth the effort. I take advantage of all the learning programs offered to Employees, continuously increasing my skills to continue to be marketable in today’s changing job climate. I have been in the same Company for many years and it is never the same; working in a lot of different areas, always changing and learning continuously all the time.

My favorite thing about working for Cricket Wireless is the culture/atmosphere in the office. Everyone knows they have a specific role to perform and tasks to accomplish. We help each other meet our individual, team, and company goals. Knowledge sharing is everywhere and no question is too small to be asked. Although there is a management hierarchy, it does not feel like there is; meaning everyone is treated with the same respect whether front-line employee taking customer calls, back-office supervisor managing a team of IT professionals, or Associate Vice President running an entire part of the business.

I have worked at Dell for 16 years which is a long time at a single company, but it is not uncommon at a large multinational company such as Dell. At a large company like this , you have the opportunity to contribute in many roles, organizations, and locations. It's always enjoyable to contribute in new organizations with new teams located in different countries. Each new project provides you with another network of contacts and many times new friends. One of my most favorite experiences is meeting and learning to work with new people and teams. It keeps me motivated and its never boring at a large multinational company. Also, there are endless tools and mentoring opportunities to help with your career growth throughout your career.

My favorite thing about working for a company is when they have a strong healthy company culture. I am especially fond of a company who not only verbally speaks their core values, but also lives their core values through their actions - talking the talk and walking the walk. A company where the majority of individuals if not all individuals care about you not only from a professional development stand point, but also care about you personally - how you are doing outside of work; From this it avoids making you feel like just another number at a company.

My favorite thing about working with SAP are the endless opportunities for personal development. If I want to learn more about the company itself, or what my colleagues in other areas do, or if I want to upskill and improve my knowledge in a technical area, SAP provides me with the time and resources to do so. It also helps that my colleagues are fantastically clever and willing to share their knowledge, as well as being all-round great people.

What I like about Verizon is the constant effort by the company to ensure your well being and safety. Specifically, during this pandemic they have made it a point to keep workers safe in there homes when they can and spare no expense to keep you safe as you are working in the field. Our CEO is a very genuine person and it all starts there.

What I really enjoy about working at U.S. Bank is how they value their employees. They are very transparent and have daily meetings to see how their employees are doing, how co-workers can help you on any projects, and to build a community within your teams. It is a great place to work with much exposure to senior leadership even in a virtual capacity. They emphasize equity and equality. U.S. Bank is a great place to work!

Good day Jessica. I work with Verizon. My favorite thing about working for my company is the work/life balance. I love my job and I spend many hours working on challenging and exciting projects but of course I prioritize spending time with my family. Verizon provides me with opportunities to work hard and be challenged, but it also provides me with perks like telecommuting a few days a week and I am to enjoy vacation and personal time where I take a break from work and spend valuable time with my family and myself. A great benefit that I took advantage of recently was parental leave. I was able to take up to 8 weeks parental leave when my son was born. The time spent with my son was priceless.

Hope this help Jessica. Good luck for the future.
