Corporate Challenge Events is delighted to announce and launch the inaugural Workplace Culture Month for Australia and New Zealand to be held in the month of April.
The aim of Workplace Culture Month is to put the spotlight on the importance of culture in all businesses and organisations and what can be done to improve it in all team environments.
Corporate Challenge Events is a leader in creating positive team cultures through its expertise in team building, corporate training and company conference planning.
Managing Director of Corporate Challenge Events Dwain Richardson said his team was currently planning a series of educational and enriching content, training exercises and corporate events to roll out through April.
“We hope to grow Workplace Culture Month each year so it becomes a fixture on the calendar for organisations all over Australia and New Zealand,” said Richardson.
“This year we will be releasing an educational e-book on practising a positive team culture, hosting a number of participation events in Australia and New Zealand, and using social media to showcase what we and others do to drive workplace culture.”
On Facebook and Twitter, organisations are encouraged to use #WorkplaceCultureMonth throughout April to highlight their practices for a positive workplace culture.
This month in the lead-up to Workplace Culture Month, Richardson will be publishing a blog providing some simple tips for businesses to get started working on their culture.
“Practising a positive and fun team culture in your workplace requires time and commitment.
“Often these two little words ‘time’ and ‘commitment’ are the barriers for a company culture moving from poor or just bearable to good or even amazing.
“This month’s blog will provide three simple activities that can be done in any workplace which will impact its team culture for the better.”
1. Revisit your vision, mission and values as a team
“Set some time for a meeting to openly discuss with your staff what you are all working towards as a business team and why you all do what you do.The buy-in and cultural lift a session like this can provide is invaluable.”
2. Create a closed Facebook group for your staff
“Encourage everyone to post about the little things they do regularly to promote a positive team culture.You will be surprised how the words, images and vision of what some do will inspire other team members.”
3. Schedule a team lunch at regular intervals
“It may be once a month in a meeting or lunch room or even in the great outdoors. Consider everyone bringing a plate to share and it’s ‘tools down’ for an hour. This is another very simple and potentially creative way of team building amongst staff.”
Richardson said there was nothing new or complex in those three tips – just some simple ways to get started that require a commitment and a little bit of time.
“We all know culture is important. It’s how to put it into practice that can be the challenge. This blog provides some simple tips. Workplace Culture Month will take it to another level.”
