5 components of great workplace culture

Organizational leaders may think offering employee perks or flexible work schedules is the key to cultivating a positive workplace culture, but there are actually a number of more fundamental building blocks they must first address, according to the Harvard Business Review.

Here are the five systems that companies must establish to instill their values in day-to-day work.

1. Hiring. Having clear behavioral expectations allows leaders to identify applicants that will cement organizational culture.

2. Strategy and goal setting. This guidance not only lets employees know what they should be striving toward but also how they should go about it.

3. Assessing. Determining how behaviors are assessed and evaluated will ensure employees are aware of cultural expectations.

4. Development. Development opportunities keep employees engaged and moving in the right direction while still having faith in the organization's culture.

5. Rewards. By making a rewards system standardized and transparent, organizations can eliminate infighting among employees vying for promotions.
