A company is one thing but culture is everything. Develop a strong team who understands your defined values, mission, and goals. Check out our 7 ideas all about the perks that’ll help you get the cohesive team you’ve been wanting.
1. Put them in the Shark Tank
Empower the people who are working within your organization. Get them thinking in an innovative and intrapreneurial way. Put on a semi-annual event, Shark Tank style, let your employees pitch their best ideas directly to you. This helps develop a culture that’s both collaborative and collective.
2. Culture Calendar
Introduce a calendar that’s sole purpose is for culture events. Employees will then have access to employee birthdays, team meetings, you name it and they’ll know about it. Having a calendar streamlines information, even across different offices, which boosts team communication and overall transparency.
3. Ping- Pong Table, Anyone?
Get those paddles ready and the competition going. Having a healthy competition in the office is great for not only you and your employees but also the customers. Competition gets the passionate drive in employees going. So why not set up some tournaments with a few great prizes?
4. Team Lunches
Make team lunches a priority! Encourage your team to schedule set lunches on a certain day of the week. This connects your employees personally both in and out of work.
5. Recognition and Rewards
Find an app that fits your culture and offers your employees the opportunity to praise to one another. By the end of the week or month, let your employees choose a reward that they want (within reason).
6. Books on Tap
Try covering the cost of books your employees are interested in. Allowing your employees to learn something new gives them the chance to increase their knowledge while providing them the chance to refine their skills in something new.
7. Lucky Lunches
Make lunches a monthly lotto where employees draw names to go to lunch paid for by the company. This gives your employees the chance to meet someone new in a different department, creating relationships that may not have existed before.
Maybe not all these ideas are the perfect fit for your culture but try instituting one or two and see where it takes you, your team, and your company.
