The tangible culture of a business is measurable. It can be assessed by policies created by company management.
It includes salary level compared to similar businesses, employee benefits such as health insurance, vacation pay and retirement plans, quality of the working environment, working conditions, and hours of operations, for example.
It can also include social activities to promote employee engagement and personal or professional growth.
It reflects the values of the company, its priorities, and how they conduct business in general.
For example, management can offer excellent benefits, but expectations or a disdainful attitude of a manager will damper employee performance. As opposed to this situation, management might have a human or mindful approach that makes the employees feel respected and valued and therefore motivated despite a lesser compensation.
The intangible culture is a direct result of the tangible culture. It is affected by how the tangible aspects of the business culture are delivered.
Have you ever been in a place where you felt that the air was so thick that you could cut it with a knife? It is negative energy. You can’t see it; you just feel it as soon as you come in contact with the business.
On the other hand, you probably went to places that made you feel welcome and uplifted before you even met anyone there. This is positive energy. You can’t see it; you just feel it as soon as you come in contact with the business.
Negative energy will result in gossip, arguments, competition, back-stabbing, lack of focus, absenteeism, high turnover, abuse of privileges, ungrateful attitude, harassment, and poor performance overall. It always leads to a loss of revenue.
A company ruled by negative energy is like a house with shaky foundations. It can crumble anytime with no warning.
On the contrary, positive energy will encourage cooperation, involvement in the company, dedication, loyalty, and healthier and happier employees, resulting in superior overall performance.
Change the energy from negative to positive, and all these detrimental behaviors will turn around, opening growth opportunities and generating prosperity for all.
