Three Ways to Improve Company Culture in the Workplace

Company Culture Workplace

At BIGfish, company culture is a top priority and allows the BIGteam to have a positive and productive work environment. Read on to hear three ways we create a positive company culture and what we think is most important in an office environment to work together as a team in order to produce top-notch work for the BIGclients!

Being comfortable while working allows you to focus on your work, rather than thinking about a restrictive skirt or itchy sweater. Relaxed dress codes allow employees to express themselves and feel comfortable in their own skin. That said, it is important to maintain a level of professionalism and respect for clients, colleagues and the work being done. The BIGteam maintains a professional image and takes pride in our appearances with a business casual dress code. 

A strong community inside and outside of an office is crucial for team success. Positive relationships can be fostered with the right office set up and fun team-building events. Desks? Check. Cubicles? Too divisive. An open office setup optimizes a community between employees, where ideas can flow freely. BIGteam members have the option to move workspaces throughout the day, with additional tables and smaller officers available at all times. A flexible workspace allows for open and clear communication between employees. Outside events show employees that you care, and provide the opportunity to form relationships between co-workers. Annual events outside of the BIGoffice include a Halloween celebration, winter holiday party, and of course we never miss the opportunity to celebrate a birthday or achievement inside the office with a celebratory lunch

Benefits are an essential part of taking care of your employees. Employees with good benefits are happier, more loyal and easier to retain. When your employees feel taken care of, they will want to take care of the company and its clients. BIGfish provides extensive employee benefits including retirement plans, health insurance, unlimited work from home days, TSA Pre✓ and reimbursement for gym, parking and commuter expenses. We also hold monthly catered lunch and learn events that fuse fun food with professional development opportunities.
