What is an excellent work environment?

Your organization can be an excellent work environment and achieve even better results.

Business leaders – and researchers – rely on the measurement model of Great Place to Work ® to establish an objective standard of excellent work environment. The annual Great Place to Work studies are based on data from over 10 million employees in 50 countries, representing around 6,000 organizations of different sizes, sectors and structures.

What is an excellent work environment? The Collaborator’s vision

Excellent work environments are the result of daily relationships with employees and managers – not just a list of programs and benefits.

The key factor common to these relationships is TRUST. From the point of view of the Collaborators, an excellent work environment is where:

  • They trust the people they work for;
  • They are PROUD of what they do; is
  • YOU DID WITH the people you work with.

Trust is the cardinal principle of excellent work environments. It derives from the credibility of management, from the respect recognized to employees and the extent to which they believe they receive fair treatment . The degree of pride in the organization, the level of sincerity of the bonds and the camaraderie between employees are further fundamental elements.

What is an excellent work environment? The vision of the Manager

From the manager’s point of view, an excellent work environment is where:

  • IT IS POSSIBLE TO REACH THE COMPANY OBJECTIVES ;
  • thanks to people who MAKE YOUR OWN BEST ; is
  • WORK TOGETHER LIKE A TEAM / FAMILY in a TRUSTenvironment .

There are nine steps – nine macro areas of management practices – through which managers create an environment of trust. Excellent work environments achieve company objectives through the dissemination of vision and values, communication and listening. They have collaborators who offer their best through recognition, growth and care practices. And they work together as a team / family through the practices of inclusion and reception, celebration of successes and sharing of profits.

This Model – confirmed by Great Place to Work   in over 25 years of research conducted by interviewing collaborators, is universal and coherent over the years, because it has been the same throughout the world since its inception. It applies not only to business contexts, but to all organizations, in the most varied sectors and of different sizes.

How can trust be measured?

We analyze the TRUST index through two lenses. We evaluate the culture of the organization through the answers provided by the collaborators themselves with a survey addressed to the collaborators, the TRUST INDEX © survey , which is modeled on five dimensions identified through the employees’ perception of an excellent work environment. And we look at the work environment through the CULTURE AUDIT © , organized through the nine macro areas of management practices for the definition of an excellent work environment.

This survey measures precisely the behaviors and the context that constitute the foundations of the most coveted working environments and successful organizations.

Corporate executives, scholars, and media rely on the Great Place to Work metrics   to establish an objective standard of excellent work environment. These metrics – from the Trust Index to the Culture Audit – form the methodological basis adopted by Great Place to Work in helping companies transform themselves into excellent work environments.

Negative workplace environment: how to make it less toxic

The work environment is done by colleagues , the office , the company and your superiors. Basically everything is around you every day. If it is a positive place , full of nice people with whom you go out in the evening and have fun, work will not be so heavy. Instead, if the work environment is negative , get up every morning to get to the office and spend about 8 hours inside, it becomes a real nightmare . Here are some tips to make a negative work environment less toxic .

How to make the work environment less negative

First you  work on yourself . When you go to a fixed job of the goals to be achieved alone during the day. They will be your daily challenge and if you manage to cross the finish line, in the evening you will feel much more satisfied. This personal competition  helps to distract yourself from the work environment in which you are immersed.

If instead of thinking only of yourself you are not really capable, a suggestion to make the work environment more positive and pleasant is certainly not to forget irony and humor . A funny joke about an event you’ve had with a colleague can be the right way to start a healthier and more enjoyable work relationship.

Another suggestion to make the work environment less toxic is to try and organize something in the office.  Whether it is an aperitif, a moment of leisure, a special lunch break: everything can become functional to establish links, create new relationships and make the office a pleasant and healthy place to stay every day. An important advice is then to do some sports tournaments together: it is great for team building, but also for establishing healthy relationships between colleagues.
