Building a company culture that promotes transparency empowers employees and people leaders to work better together.
It begins with trust
Trust creates a foundation for a more positive working relationship — one that can help employees and their leaders weather difficult times or overcome obstacles.
It’s reinforced by repetition
Built over time and with consistent action and support, trust — and the more positive working relationship that it produces — creates an environment where employees feel supported, engagened, and empowered. Subsequently, managers feel more aligned with their teams and better able to communicate and manage change, or navigate challenges.
It starts at the top
Behaviours and attitudes that are seen, are repeated. It’s upper management that sets the tone for the company culture and establishes the attributes that the organization values. This mindset trickles down to other people leaders within the organization, and eventually, reach frontline staff — influencing their attitudes toward work as well as their behaviour.
The trend of transparency
This approach to workforce management has become more popular in recent years with organizations investing time and money into ensuring that they stay in-tune with their employee voice and in turn, that their employees feel heard.
They do this because they know that greater alignment means a happier, and more productive, workforce. Something that’s good for both the employee and the business.
