Improving workplace culture isn’t just about making it more fun. All the holiday parties and cool decorations mean nothing when the workers aren’t engaged. Chris Carey points out that not all companies are built the same, and therefore, no two cultures will be the same. Just look at the military culture: even though the style is dictatorial to the extreme, it is still effective. Carey isn’t suggesting we all hire drill sergeants for managers. Instead, the managers need to figure out what matters to their employees and foster a culture that encourages that, whether it be exciting innovation or excellent customer service.
