A few months ago, we took a look at the inspiring company culture of Southwest Airlines after hearing Herb Kelleher speak at an EO Austin event. At Far West Capital, we’ve built a company culture we’ve proud of and that our employees enjoy.
It’s important to us to create and maintain a workplace that is as productive, team-centric and fun as possible. How can you improve company culture? Here are a few ideas.
1. Listen to your team
Create an environment open to hearing ideas and learning from each other. This helps create a collaborative and encouraging team.
2. Cater food
Our office caters breakfast and lunch a few times a week and it helps employee morale and fuels them to continue their great work.
3. Allow flexible time off
We know everyone needs time away to re-charge and re-focus. Events, such as family gatherings, school activities, or just a need to take a break come up and it’s important for employees to feel empowered to manage their priorities. We believe providing flexibility makes our employees more productive and much happier in the workplace.
