Recent HR statistics show that younger generations of workers want to be a culture fit for their new company. Accordingly, 64% of millennials would rather work at a lesser-paid job they lovethan at a job they find boring. While this shows that workers now wish to take on more stimulating tasks and projects, they also want to experience a comfortable and healthy work environment.
That’s where your company culture comes into play: be sure to share your company values from the start and introduce what life is truly like in your organization. For example, potential employees want to know that inclusion, empathy, kindness and trust are core values in your company. They are also gauging if they can build meaningful relationships in the workplace through their manager-employee relationship, company events, and team-building activities.
Let them know what you have to offer, and remember that actions speak louder than words: company values should not be a front to hire and onboard new employees but a genuine commitment on your part. Your staff spends most of their week at work, so make sure that they can thrive in a healthy professional environment.
