No One Has Time to Waste on a Toxic Workplace
Not as an employee, not as a manager, not as a boss…
There is nothing more physically, mentally, or emotionally draining than a toxic workplace culture. You spend the majority of your day at work, so if that environment is toxic then it’s going to spill over into every part of your life, no matter how hard you try to compartmentalize. Toxic workplaces will kill productivity, obliterate your ability to see opportunities and suppress the potential of individuals, organizations, and bottom lines.
Don’t squander time managing the chaos of a toxic workplace, participate in the creation of a thriving workplace culture that you love being a part of every day!
Love Your Work, AND Your Workplace
Whether you’re remote or in-person, culture always matters.
When you create a thriving workplace culture, you’ll love not just the amazing work you accomplish but also the place and people you work with. You’ll be able to manage and resolve conflict faster, with way less interpersonal pain and paperwork. You’ll have less stress and more time to work on those innovative strategic initiatives. You’ll be able to both retain and recruit top talent, even when they’re being offered a bigger paycheck elsewhere.
A thriving culture isn’t a luxury, it’s essential to fulfilling on the heart and soul of your organization.

Why Your Culture Makes the Difference
Happy as a Measurement
If you’re skeptical, trust us, you’re not the first to push back on the words “happy” and “feel good” and that’s okay. But, whether you embrace it or not, you want happy employees at work. They make everything better. And, we have the research to prove it.
And no, we’re not talking about rainbows and unicorns. We’re talking about employees who come to work inspired. They’re joyous knowing they’re right where they’re supposed to be. They belong. They matter. And it feels good. It’s the same feeling you get when you relax around a campfire, score a goal, or give a friend a high-five.
Happy? Or Engaged?
So stop for a moment. Think about you. Are you better when you’re happier? If you’re a parent, do you hope your children grow up happy? Or simply “engaged” or “satisfied”?
And while your employees are not your children, we want them to live a life they love, and that includes while they work. We know what it FEELS like to be happy – there’s a lightness in our step, a sparkle in our eye and joy in our interactions. Engagement and satisfaction don’t have this effect. We also know what happiness LOOKS like and what it doesn’t look like. We can tell when smiles are real, or flat and faked.
Why A Thriving Team Makes the Difference
At Choose People, we measure what matters – and a thriving team makes that difference. In fact, we literally measure, “Do your people feel good about coming to work?” We’re looking at the emotional health of your organization. Once when we asked this question, one woman paused, sighed, and told us, “In my last job, there would be days when I would be driving to work, where I would rather get in an accident than arrive at work.” And that’s just not okay.
Of course, that’s not the only question we measure. We have many more. And we have hours of research and loads of data that prove happiness matters.
No, we don’t believe you can make someone happy. And you’re not responsible for making your team happy. However, you are responsible for creating an empowering context within which they can be happy. That context is your culture – it’s literally the air your team breathes while running your marathon.
