Company with the best culture

Workplace culture is the personality of your organisation. It’s what makes your business unique. It is the sum of your organisation values, traditions, beliefs, interactions, behaviours, and attitudes. Positive workplace culture attracts talent, drives engagement, impacts employee happiness, and ultimately it will affects performance. Let’s find out the top 5 big organisation with the best culture that we can adopt into our company.

Google

Google is well known for their cultures for years now and sets the tone for many of the perks and benefits startups are now known for. Free meals, employee trips and parties, financial bonuses, gyms, a dog-friendly environment and so on. 

As Google has grown and spread out around the globe, keeping a culture has proven difficult between their headquarters and remote offices, same goes to the different departments within the organisation. The larger a organisation becomes, the more that culture has to reinvent itself to accommodate more employees and the need for management.

Twitter

Twitter’s employee can’t stop talking about the company’s culture. Rooftop meetings, friendly coworkers and a team-oriented environment in which every person is motivated by the company’s goals have inspired that praise.

They also can’t stop talking about how they love working with other smart people. Raved about being part of a company that is doing something that matters in the world, and there is a sense that no one leaves until the work gets done. They can also expect free meals at the San Francisco headquarters, along with yoga classes and unlimited vacations for some. These and many other perks are not unheard of in the startup world. 

Facebook

Similar to Google, Facebook is an organisation that has expanded in growth. They also are synonymous with a unique culture. Facebook offers tons of food, stock options, open office space, a focus on teamwork environment and open communication, a competitive atmosphere that fosters personal growth and learning and great benefits.

Yet, Facebook has the same struggles as similar big organisation: a highly competitive industry leads to a sometimes stressful and competitive work culture. Additionally, a free and organic organizational structure that worked for the smaller organization is less successful for the larger one.

REI

For outdoor enthusiasts, REI has long been the company to turn to for great gear. Employees of REI agree that this is a place where greatness happens, beyond the beloved camping and outdoor gears and products. REI’s mission is to equip both customers and employees for the outdoors, not just to have fun but also in promoting stewardship of the environment.

Adobe

Adobe is an organisation that goes out of its way to give employees challenging projects and then provide the trust and support to help them meet those challenges successfully. While it offers benefits and perks like any modern creative company, Adobe’s is a culture that avoids micromanaging in favour of trusting employees to do their best.

Adobe products are synonymous with creativity, and only through the avoidance of micromanaging are the people who create those products truly free to create. For example, Adobe doesn’t use ratings to establish employee capabilities, feeling that that inhibits creativity and harms how teams work. Managers take on the role of a coach, more than anything, letting employees set goals and determine how they should be assessed.

Employees are also given stock options so that they know they have both a stake and reward in the company’s success. Continual training and culture that promotes risk taking without fear of penalty are part of Adobe’s open company culture.

Takeaway

Even the best culture needs to revisit itself to meet a growing company’s team. We can’t beat having a team who are friendly to each other, and are both good at and love what they are doing. When your employees are completely immersed in the same interests as your company, the culture propels itself forward almost on its own. A culture that is owned and propelled by the same people puts value in their voices. Find the best company in the Philippines with JobStreet Philippines.
