If the ongoing “Great Resignation” has taught us anything since hundreds of workers began fleeing en masse in early 2021, company culture matters most.
According to a survey by FlexJobs, 25% of employees quit their roles in the six months leading up to March 2022 due to a toxic workplace. These days, unfortunately, many entrepreneurs and managers have a warped view of company culture — and when we define “culture,” we can more accurately say what it’s based on and what it is not.
Company culture is a system of shared values and beliefs that maintain social cohesion as well as contribute to ideation and growth. By contrast, it is not solely built upon material perks like free coffee or background music in the office.
