It’s about culture, not compliance

Now, more than ever, business owners need to contend with employment relations factors that can present themselves as real compliance risks. However, if compliance is the angle to which you are focussing your HR practices, it is time to rethink your general approach to Human Resource Management and focus on cultivating a positive workplace culture.

Decades of research confirms the tangible link between a business’ culture and its overall success whether that is examined from the lens of profitability, customer service, quality, or growth.

A strong and positive culture is readily obtainable for any business, no matter how small or large, and even implementing a small number of adjustments can go a long way towards shaping an improved culture and reduce compliance risk.

For small to medium businesses that don’t have a dedicated HR team to focus on people and culture, you can gradually incorporate these levers into your organisational planning, or consider outsourcing to an experienced HR consultant.

List of five culture improvement levers that can make a significant impact on workplace culture:
Adopt good HR practice
Invest in leadership training
Instil shared values
Align aces with their places
Foster inclusion and belonging
