Which comes first, a successful enterprise or a great company culture? When you look at American companies considered to have the best company cultures, you see a lot of recognizable, highly successful names: Google, Adobe, Microsoft, HubSpot, Zoom and Apple, just to name a few. A firm believer in the value of inspiring employees by prioritizing a positive work environment, DGI Communications also has deep experience in the how to help create one.
According to LearnHub, “Millennial and Gen Z employees look for more than job stability, competitive salaries, flexibility, and benefits to be committed and stay loyal to a company. They are driven by a sense of shared [values] in a work environment with meaningful purpose. They need to have a strong sense of contribution to the ‘bigger picture’ to give their best effort.” Recognizing the importance of mental health support, work-life balance, inclusivity and equitability, and inviting spaces go a long way toward hiring and retaining the workforce you want.
Think of positive messaging and graphic design opportunities to highlight team members (and not only for performance metrics!) and foster community among teams across all levels of your structure.
Creating a visually appealing, inclusive and welcoming workspace is a relatively simple way to reinforce the positive company culture you’ve built (or are building!). Look to the walls and open spaces in your building for opportunities to cultivate community, highlight team members and inspire your employees using colors and imagery that reinforces your brand.
When it comes to those inviting spaces, we have a few ideas you can implement to bring positivity into the physical spaces your employees occupy:
Freestanding installations, wall decals and large format printing can all help create a gratitude wall for your workspace. Give employees sticky notes or whiteboard markers and let them get creative, or source quotes from within your organization that highlight colleagues. The possibilities are endless.
Positive Messaging and Inspirational Quote Wall Decals
Choose a color palate and design inspirational quote panels to line a corridor or choose iconic individuals with ties to your industry to quote. Support your workforce with the inclusive use of quotes from or narratives about individuals who reflect their lives and values as well as your organization’s values.
Custom Printed Acoustic Products
Many of our traditional and environmentally friendly acoustic products can be custom printed, bringing inspiration and positivity to functional, decorative panels that make your workspace more comfortable for employees.
Just like you, DGI strives to be a company our employees enjoy working for. The ideas above only the beginning of the possibilities for our partners. We’re excited to work with organizations looking to build and boost positive workplace visual messaging that is not only attractive and engaging, but functional and good for your bottom line.
