According to Achievers’ study,
20.8% of employees say that
they are actively engaged
at work, while 16.3% are fully
disengaged, and 31.3% feel
that they’re engaged but
their organization should do
more to enhance employee
experience.
In order to get more of your
employees engaged, you
need to create a culture of
positivity. Fostering a positive
culture increases motivation,
improves attainment, and
reduces the costs that would
typically be associated with
high turnover. All of which are
critical to the success of your
organization.
This guide dives into what a
positive culture entails and
its benefits, and lays out the
steps organizations need to
take in order to achieve it.
Introduction

What Does a Positive
Culture Entail?
Workplace cultures are the shared values, belief systems, attitudes
and assumptions that employees share. A positive culture is an
environment where those values, belief systems, attitudes, and
assumptions allow employees to feel respected, valued, and
supported. Below are just some of the many factors that attribute
to a positive working culture.
• Open communication and dialogue regarding your company’s
vision, mission, and values both in the long-term and in the
short term.
• Strong leadership that values their employees and treats them
with respect.
• Career development programs that allow employees to expand
their skill set and/or transition into another function or role.
• The acknowledgement of important projects and milestones,
and personal life events.
• Policies and programs that promote diversity and inclusion and
zero tolerance when it comes to harassment and bullying.

It’s become all too easy for your
employees to look at the glass
half empty. For some, work
may be stressful, frustrating or
just plain boring. Others might
be losing sight of the bigger
picture, and need to reconnect
with things they are grateful for
and enjoy about their job.
We’ve long heard about the
power of positive thinking and if
you go deeper into the science,
the evidence is startlingly
clear: a positive attitude in the
workplace benefits everyone.
Here’s how.
The Benefits
of Positivity
in the
Workplace
Researchers have found that
positive thinking can contribute
to an increased life span, lower
rates of mental illness, better
cardiovascular health, greater
coping and stress management
skills, and more. While these ben-
efits seem very individual, their
impact can affect your entire
workforce. Positivity is healthy
and contagious. The more posi-
tive attitudes and behaviors are
encouraged, the better off your
organization will be.
Your business can take it a step
further by investing in and pro-
moting wellness programs. Any
positive initiatives that focus on
physical and mental health will
not only influence positive be-
haviors, but it will show that you
appreciate your staff and care
about their well-being. Adding a
little healthy competition is even
better, as the reward will not only
benefit them in the short-term,
but in the long run as well.
Enhanced Health
Proko. Good Things At Work. 6
Positivity often leads to more career development opportunities
like online courses and off-site training events.
According to SHRM, 30% of employees considered career
development opportunities for learning and personal growth in
general very important, and yet only 30% were happy with their
current situation.
By offering programs that will help them succeed, they will not
only gain skills that will help them excel, but they will become
more connected and engaged with their work. Programs that are
inclusive of everyone can also bring members of your staff that
don’t typically interact together.
More Career Development Opportunities
Proko. Good Things At Work. 7
According to a study from
Globant, 51% of employees,
regardless of job title or
role, say their peers are the
number one group that
inspire them to stay with a
company. Who wouldn’t want
an environment where people
work well together, and
there’s no political infighting?
Better Relationships
and Teamwork
While it’s unrealistic to avoid negative behaviors like incivility or
bullying completely, positive workplaces have policies for addressing
these situations, so that they can focus on keeping teamwork and
collaboration at the forefront of their culture.
In positive workplaces, people feel more open to share their
experience. Through engagement surveys and polls, you can gauge
the emotions and sentiments of your workforce, and help determine
positive attributes and programs that can elevate their experience.
Proko. Good Things At Work. 8
It’s long been proven that the biggest benefit to a positive workplace is
greater financial success. Positive actions like recognition and rewards
will not only influence your employee’s feelings about their workplace,
but it will increase motivation, improve attainment, and reduce the
costs that would typically be associated with high turnover.
Negativity can have the opposite effect. Behaviors like absenteeism,
burnout, and low morale when unresolved can lead to mental health
conditions like depression and anxiety, which have a significant
economic impact. According to the World Health Organization (WHO),
depression and anxiety can contribute to $1 trillion per year in lost
productivity.
Financial Success
In order to see bigger and
better business outcomes,
you need to invest in
the careers of your
employees, treat them
like stakeholders in their
company, and give them
the tools they need to do
their jobs.
Proko. Good Things At Work. 9
Five Steps To Building
a Positive Workplace
Culture
Whether your organization is just beginning to grow, or you’re trying
to keep your current employees engaged or both, there are quite a
handful of steps you need to take in order to establish and build a positive
workplace culture. Below are five steps that will help you get started.
Proko. Good Things At Work. 11
It’s important to establish
and communicate your core
values with employees so
that they feel connected
with your organization.
Values are guiding
principles and beliefs that
your organization adheres
to in order to drive your
business forward. They are
often created when you’re
just starting to build your
business, and may change
as it evolves.
Establish and
Communicate Your
Values
Alluding to these values in the mission statement on your website is
not enough; you must take demonstrable actions so that employees
feel an individual responsibility towards these values. This means asking
for and receiving input before, during, and after you first lay out your
values. Sending out surveys and polls to understand the pulse of your
organization in relation to these values will help you understand if your
employees are connected with these values and if there is unreported
behavior that is not matching with the principles that you’ve outlined.
Establishing and communicating your values isn’t a one time act; you
must reinforce the message in different ways so that your employees can
continue to feel inspired by them. This is especially the case if your values
change, even slightly, as your employees are constantly reevaluating why
they are working for your organization. It doesn’t hurt to remind them of
the pride they feel towards your organization as well.
Proko. Good Things At Work. 12
According to a TINYpulse report, 21.5% of workers who don’t feel
recognized for their hard work in an organization have been looking for a
new job in the past three months, as opposed to 12.4% of workers who do
feel recognized. In order to build a positive corporate culture, you need to
put recognition and appreciation at the forefront. You can achieve it by:
• Using internal communication channels to express appreciation for
team achievements and individual hard work.
• Giving constructive feedback to employees that will motivate them to
improve.
• Celebrating business successes with the entire workforce.
• Finding ways to develop your employees’ strengths.
Employees who know that their efforts will be rewarded and appreciated
tend to innovate more often and work harder. Feeling a direct link
Express Appreciation
between business success
and their work adds meaning
to what they are doing.
Everyone feels engaged
when they feel their hard
work is recognized.
Proko. Good Things At Work. 13
Your employees feel more
confident when you encourage
open communication and
collaboration. Open and honest
communication will help build
trust with your employees, and
they will in turn feel comfortable
sharing their feedback and
experiences with you. This type
of commentary typically shared
in surveys and polls will help
you audit the engagement
levels of your employees, and
will allow you to create anti-
bullying policies and complaint
procedures that work best for
everyone.
Encouraging open
communication also leads to a
virtuous circle of engagement
and advocacy. Employees
buying into the culture of
transparency and authenticity
are more willing to advocate for
their brand.
In addition to building trust and
advocacy, having an open and
Foster Open
Communication and
Collaboration
collaborative environment will
motivate employees to build
relationships with their peers
both inside and outside of
work. Encouraging employees
to get to know the peers they
do and do not interact with
often will not only help them
better understand how your
organization works, but will
make them feel comfortable
interacting outside of work.
Proko. Good Things At Work. 14
Employees who feel
supported, cared for and
trusted are more engaged
and they naturally bring their
best to the business. That’s
why organizations need a
corporate culture where
employees feel cared for.
You can cultivate a culture of
support by:
• Setting up internal support
systems like workshops,
career mentoring and
gift giving programs for
employees who are going
through transitions at work
or in their personal lives.
• Keeping people
accountable and available
to help each other get
complex tasks done
smoothly.
• Encouraging managers
to schedule face-to-face
meetings and prioritizing
activities to strengthen
Support Your
Employees
human connections with
employees.
• Implementing internal
communication channels
where employees can
announce their individual
and team achievements.

Motivated and engaged employees are made if they are treated equally
and have clear professional goals that they can work towards. Continuing
the performance dialogue outside of the formal review process will give
your staff the opportunity to consistently reflect, evaluate, and measure
their own performance.
In addition, identifying measurable performance indicators for your
organization as a whole can help you promote healthy competition
and collaboration, and will show your employees that their individual
contributions are valuable to your business.
Recognition and rewards can come in a myriad of ways, but it’s what your
employees consider most important when making the decision to leave
or stay in their job. Having a clear transparent program for promotions
and other rewards is key in motivating them to go above and beyond.
Create Clear Goals and Rewards for Employees
Proko. Good Things At Work. 17
Conclusion
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves about the very things that
attracted us to our jobs in the first place or remember the things and
people that we’re grateful for. Positive thoughts create real value in life,
especially in the workplace. A positive mindset is healthy and contagious,
and it benefits everyone. It fosters an environment where employees are
happy and engaged, which leads to better business outcomes.
A positive culture in the workplace is required for fostering a sense
of pride and ownership among employees. People invest their future in
the organization and work hard to create opportunities that also benefits
the organization. By rewarding those employees, other team members
will be encouraged to contribute in the same ways, ultimately resulting in
a positive work place culture. A community of encouraged employees, in
turn, produces endless benefits to the organization.

  • 3. According to Achievers’ study, 20.8% of employees say that they are actively engaged at work, while 16.3% are fully disengaged, and 31.3% feel that they’re engaged but their organization should do more to enhance employee experience. In order to get more of your employees engaged, you need to create a culture of positivity. Fostering a positive culture increases motivation, improves attainment, and reduces the costs that would typically be associated with high turnover. All of which are critical to the success of your organization. This guide dives into what a positive culture entails and its benefits, and lays out the steps organizations need to take in order to achieve it. Introduction Proko. Good Things At Work. 3
  • 4. What Does a Positive Culture Entail?
  • 5. Workplace cultures are the shared values, belief systems, attitudes and assumptions that employees share. A positive culture is an environment where those values, belief systems, attitudes, and assumptions allow employees to feel respected, valued, and supported. Below are just some of the many factors that attribute to a positive working culture. • Open communication and dialogue regarding your company’s vision, mission, and values both in the long-term and in the short term. • Strong leadership that values their employees and treats them with respect. • Career development programs that allow employees to expand their skill set and/or transition into another function or role. • The acknowledgement of important projects and milestones, and personal life events. • Policies and programs that promote diversity and inclusion and zero tolerance when it comes to harassment and bullying. Proko. Good Things At Work. 5
  • 6. It’s become all too easy for your employees to look at the glass half empty. For some, work may be stressful, frustrating or just plain boring. Others might be losing sight of the bigger picture, and need to reconnect with things they are grateful for and enjoy about their job. We’ve long heard about the power of positive thinking and if you go deeper into the science, the evidence is startlingly clear: a positive attitude in the workplace benefits everyone. Here’s how. The Benefits of Positivity in the Workplace Researchers have found that positive thinking can contribute to an increased life span, lower rates of mental illness, better cardiovascular health, greater coping and stress management skills, and more. While these ben- efits seem very individual, their impact can affect your entire workforce. Positivity is healthy and contagious. The more posi- tive attitudes and behaviors are encouraged, the better off your organization will be. Your business can take it a step further by investing in and pro- moting wellness programs. Any positive initiatives that focus on physical and mental health will not only influence positive be- haviors, but it will show that you appreciate your staff and care about their well-being. Adding a little healthy competition is even better, as the reward will not only benefit them in the short-term, but in the long run as well. Enhanced Health Proko. Good Things At Work. 6
  • 7. Positivity often leads to more career development opportunities like online courses and off-site training events. According to SHRM, 30% of employees considered career development opportunities for learning and personal growth in general very important, and yet only 30% were happy with their current situation. By offering programs that will help them succeed, they will not only gain skills that will help them excel, but they will become more connected and engaged with their work. Programs that are inclusive of everyone can also bring members of your staff that don’t typically interact together. More Career Development Opportunities Proko. Good Things At Work. 7
  • 8. According to a study from Globant, 51% of employees, regardless of job title or role, say their peers are the number one group that inspire them to stay with a company. Who wouldn’t want an environment where people work well together, and there’s no political infighting? Better Relationships and Teamwork While it’s unrealistic to avoid negative behaviors like incivility or bullying completely, positive workplaces have policies for addressing these situations, so that they can focus on keeping teamwork and collaboration at the forefront of their culture. In positive workplaces, people feel more open to share their experience. Through engagement surveys and polls, you can gauge the emotions and sentiments of your workforce, and help determine positive attributes and programs that can elevate their experience. Proko. Good Things At Work. 8
  • 9. It’s long been proven that the biggest benefit to a positive workplace is greater financial success. Positive actions like recognition and rewards will not only influence your employee’s feelings about their workplace, but it will increase motivation, improve attainment, and reduce the costs that would typically be associated with high turnover. Negativity can have the opposite effect. Behaviors like absenteeism, burnout, and low morale when unresolved can lead to mental health conditions like depression and anxiety, which have a significant economic impact. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), depression and anxiety can contribute to $1 trillion per year in lost productivity. Financial Success In order to see bigger and better business outcomes, you need to invest in the careers of your employees, treat them like stakeholders in their company, and give them the tools they need to do their jobs.

  • 10. Five Steps To Building a Positive Workplace Culture
  • 11. Whether your organization is just beginning to grow, or you’re trying to keep your current employees engaged or both, there are quite a handful of steps you need to take in order to establish and build a positive workplace culture. Below are five steps that will help you get started. Proko. Good Things At Work. 11
  • 12. It’s important to establish and communicate your core values with employees so that they feel connected with your organization. Values are guiding principles and beliefs that your organization adheres to in order to drive your business forward. They are often created when you’re just starting to build your business, and may change as it evolves. Establish and Communicate Your Values Alluding to these values in the mission statement on your website is not enough; you must take demonstrable actions so that employees feel an individual responsibility towards these values. This means asking for and receiving input before, during, and after you first lay out your values. Sending out surveys and polls to understand the pulse of your organization in relation to these values will help you understand if your employees are connected with these values and if there is unreported behavior that is not matching with the principles that you’ve outlined. Establishing and communicating your values isn’t a one time act; you must reinforce the message in different ways so that your employees can continue to feel inspired by them. This is especially the case if your values change, even slightly, as your employees are constantly reevaluating why they are working for your organization. It doesn’t hurt to remind them of the pride they feel towards your organization as well. Proko. Good Things At Work. 12
  • 13. According to a TINYpulse report, 21.5% of workers who don’t feel recognized for their hard work in an organization have been looking for a new job in the past three months, as opposed to 12.4% of workers who do feel recognized. In order to build a positive corporate culture, you need to put recognition and appreciation at the forefront. You can achieve it by: • Using internal communication channels to express appreciation for team achievements and individual hard work. • Giving constructive feedback to employees that will motivate them to improve. • Celebrating business successes with the entire workforce. • Finding ways to develop your employees’ strengths. Employees who know that their efforts will be rewarded and appreciated tend to innovate more often and work harder. Feeling a direct link Express Appreciation between business success and their work adds meaning to what they are doing. Everyone feels engaged when they feel their hard work is recognized. Proko. Good Things At Work. 13
  • 14. Your employees feel more confident when you encourage open communication and collaboration. Open and honest communication will help build trust with your employees, and they will in turn feel comfortable sharing their feedback and experiences with you. This type of commentary typically shared in surveys and polls will help you audit the engagement levels of your employees, and will allow you to create anti- bullying policies and complaint procedures that work best for everyone. Encouraging open communication also leads to a virtuous circle of engagement and advocacy. Employees buying into the culture of transparency and authenticity are more willing to advocate for their brand. In addition to building trust and advocacy, having an open and Foster Open Communication and Collaboration collaborative environment will motivate employees to build relationships with their peers both inside and outside of work. Encouraging employees to get to know the peers they do and do not interact with often will not only help them better understand how your organization works, but will make them feel comfortable interacting outside of work. Proko. Good Things At Work. 14
  • 15. Employees who feel supported, cared for and trusted are more engaged and they naturally bring their best to the business. That’s why organizations need a corporate culture where employees feel cared for. You can cultivate a culture of support by: • Setting up internal support systems like workshops, career mentoring and gift giving programs for employees who are going through transitions at work or in their personal lives. • Keeping people accountable and available to help each other get complex tasks done smoothly. • Encouraging managers to schedule face-to-face meetings and prioritizing activities to strengthen Support Your Employees human connections with employees. • Implementing internal communication channels where employees can announce their individual and team achievements.

  • 17. Motivated and engaged employees are made if they are treated equally and have clear professional goals that they can work towards. Continuing the performance dialogue outside of the formal review process will give your staff the opportunity to consistently reflect, evaluate, and measure their own performance. In addition, identifying measurable performance indicators for your organization as a whole can help you promote healthy competition and collaboration, and will show your employees that their individual contributions are valuable to your business. Recognition and rewards can come in a myriad of ways, but it’s what your employees consider most important when making the decision to leave or stay in their job. Having a clear transparent program for promotions and other rewards is key in motivating them to go above and beyond. Create Clear Goals and Rewards for Employees Proko. Good Things At Work. 17
  • 19. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves about the very things that attracted us to our jobs in the first place or remember the things and people that we’re grateful for. Positive thoughts create real value in life, especially in the workplace. A positive mindset is healthy and contagious, and it benefits everyone. It fosters an environment where employees are happy and engaged, which leads to better business outcomes. A positive culture in the workplace is required for fostering a sense of pride and ownership among employees. People invest their future in the organization and work hard to create opportunities that also benefits the organization. By rewarding those employees, other team members will be encouraged to contribute in the same ways, ultimately resulting in a positive work place culture. A community of encouraged employees, in turn, produces endless benefits to the organization. Proko. Good Things At Work. 19
