Organizations continually seek to improve their bottom line, especially when it comes to acquiring and maintaining top talent.
A way to improve the health of corporate culture is to communicate, verbally and non-verbally, that employees matter.
Communicate well and often that employees work outcomes, work life, and home life are important. Flexible work schedules creates work-life balance for employees and improves their felt support by the organization (Casper & Buffardi, 2004). Furthermore, when employees feel supported by their organization (e.g., the organization cares about not only their productivity, but also their workplace experiences and home life), they are more likely to stay with an organization, are more committed to the organization, and have better work outcomes (Eisenberger & Stinglhamber, 2011).
Communicate to your employees that they are more than just a job or a number. Genuinely express their importance as a fellow human being, and both parties will benefit.
