How Business Values Affect Company Culture

In the dynamic green industry, the values our companies uphold are like the roots that anchor and nourish your business. They’re not just words on a website; they’re the principles guiding every decision and interaction. Integrating these business values into the fabric of your company is crucial for nurturing a culture that’s authentic and aligned with your mission.

Hiring Employees that Share Your Company’s Values

Business values mean hiring people who not only have the skills but also share your company’s values and training them not just in tasks but in embodying these principles. It’s about celebrating successes that reflect these values and learning from experiences that challenge them. In the current environment where landscaping, lawn care, and tree care companies struggle to find talent, this can be a game-changer in building winning teams.

A recent report from Deloitte on Global Human Capital Trends indicates that 82% of respondents believe that culture is a potential competitive advantage, highlighting the importance of values-driven focus and the overall performance and cohesiveness of a team. This makes it an indispensable part of shaping a culture that’s both authentic and aligned with your mission.

Key Takeaways of Business Values

  1. Core values are the foundation of a company’s culture and identity.
  2. Hiring and training practices should reflect and reinforce these values.
  3. Celebration and reflection are essential for maintaining and evolving a values-driven culture.
