Having a few excellent performers on a team is one thing, but maintaining a culture of excellence is another. Around the Pure Octane office we’ve been discussing the following strategies for upholding a work atmosphere based on overall excellence.
First of all, we have to remember what defines a culture of true excellence. For us, this means that we focus on serving customers, being efficient, staying accountable, and adapting to change. A highly successful culture also requires being honest about our current state and where we need to improve.
We also subscribe to the notion that everyone on Team Pure Octane is responsible for keeping our culture steeped in excellence. Some companies might relegate such duties to a committee or the HR department. We feel a duty to promote our engaging atmosphere whenever possible. Doing so aids recruitment and overall morale.
Thinking about the future is another way to ensure a solid culture based on excellent performance. We stress constant improvement so that we can adjust to tomorrow’s demands. Learning new things every day also helps us build agility, which we know we’ll need in order to respond to changing market trends and consumer needs.
These concepts are helping us keep up a positive work culture.
