The Importance of Work Culture

By Jesse Pearson, Founder & CEO, Greenwood, JPtheGeek | | 3.4.24

Culture is one of the most critical assets for any organization. If you listen to any leadership TED Talk, they will emphasize the importance of an outstanding work environment.

Initiate your hiring process from square one, prioritizing three fundamental qualities, called the three C's: Character, Cohesiveness, and Competency. Among these, Competency holds the least significance for me. While team members need to possess the necessary skills to carry out their roles effectively, I believe that skills can be taught and developed over time. What truly matters to us is the goodness of an individual's character. Thus, a good hiring approach revolves around identifying individuals who embody your core values. Seek out those who exhibit a genuine passion for their work, a deep-seated desire to serve others, and a sincere commitment to education.

Resulting in an entire team of people who love work because they’re with like-minded people who carry similar values of caring for and serving others, resulting in an amazing environment that bleeds through to every single one of your clients.

While we all hope to avoid technology hiccups, they're bound to happen. When they do, count on the right team to be there, genuinely concerned about resolving issues promptly, and getting you back on track. Whether it's addressing technical glitches or prioritizing your organization's security, they must understand the ripple effect these challenges can have—not just on you, but also on your employees and their families (adhering to the rule of x4).

You know the saying a family that plays together, stays together. You should have a work family that plays together and embraces the notion of unity through recreation, fostering a work environment where team members bond over shared activities. This culture ensures that interacting with your team promises a fresh and extraordinary experience—a testament to your commitment to innovation and camaraderie.

By prioritizing work culture, identifying suitable employees, and ensuring that it is one of the most critical pieces to who you are, you build an amazing organization that lives and breathes the values that you set forth.
