The pulse survey was conducted in Valuebound in August 2021. Each company comes with its own values and culture, which helps in shaping the ecosystem of an organization. How does work get done, how employee interaction takes place, and how involved and inclusive do they feel in an organization- are some of the questions which sit on the foundation of organization’s habits, beliefs, system, values and vision. How does an organization ensure authentic and positive culture, nevertheless?
Proactive approach in ensuring employee inclusiveness where they feel that their voice is being heard, is an ideal state that resembles the thoughtful effort of a firm. Instead of enabling the culture of a firm to develop without guiding principles, there must be a responsibility and opportunity to inculcate a positive work environment. Valuebound’s Pulse Survey is a way for us to promote our listening strategies, and ensure higher employee engagement.
