For many business owners worldwide, the past decades have included significant financial ups and downs, strongly impacting the company culture with each rise and fall. One of the biggest challenges in regaining a healthy balance, especially after successive years withstanding personnel & revenue shifts necessitating company restructure is how to restore a positive company culture. Recreating an environment in which employees feel valued, especially those who’ve demonstrated loyalty through the harsh or lean years, needn’t be hard or even mysterious.

Following are six practical, easily-implemented ways to steady the rudder of your business and navigate forward with increased vibrancy, whether your model is simple & small or large & complex.

1. Reward loyalty on a personal level – Give personal notes of thanks, hold personal meetings to offer praise & gratitude, especially if no monetary bonus has been available for a while; arrange family gatherings to increase & expand bonding.

2. Solicit and reward suggestions – Offer employees the opportunity to contribute, thereby increasing morale & feelings of worth.

3. Re-think job titles & redistribute tasks – Sometimes company changes including both expansion and downsizing organically redistributes the work load, which can create feelings of resentment among employees who feel they’re doing more than their share. Take a look at overall goals, the tasks that support the accomplishment of those goals from a fresh perspective.

4. Add live plants to literally revitalize the energy in the work environment.

5. Change the décor – shift the furniture arrangement to break up energetic stagnation as well as make more efficient use of your space, or even relocate – look into leasing space elsewhere now that your needs have changed.

6. Invite guest speakers – poll the employees to ask for in-services from that pool of loyal individuals who may well have useful tools/info to offer as coping mechanisms for emotional, physical, spiritual, financial well-being. The more your employees feel valued, the better your company culture, the greater the feeling of satisfaction. All of this positively impacts your sustainability as a business, especially after you’ve weathered challenging storms.
