Why Collaboration Between Employers and Employees is so Important to Fostering a Healthy Workplace Culture
An organization's culture expresses its unique personality, character, and philosophy. Culture consists of shared beliefs, values, and purpose which are communicated and reinforced through various methods, ultimately shaping both the employee and customer experience.
Healthy organizations promote a culture of health, safety, and wellbeing and align workplace health plans strategically to business strategy and goals. Building a culture of respect, integrity, tolerance, and diversity is foundational to a healthy workplace. A workplace culture that is accepting, inclusive, equitable, inspiring, and supportive positively influences employee physical and psychological health, safety, and wellbeing.
