We at Pursuit Promotional Management are extremely passionate about our work. We must be in order to consistently push for new accomplishments. Although many of our team members are naturally passionate people, we have found that developing a culture that values energy and drive is highly beneficial to performance as well. Here are a few guidelines for doing just that.
• Recruit People Who Care: When hiring new people, look for candidates who really care about the work they will be doing. Even if those individuals lack some paper qualifications, they will often be the best choices.
• Onboard Into Your Culture: Some time ago at Pursuit Promotional Management we realized that our onboarding process was all about technical skills training. We changed this to also include cultural onboarding and have been thrilled with the results.
• Be Open and Consistent: Transparency and consistency are essential for achieving a positive culture. Show your team members that you value these principles, using your words and your actions.
• Maintain a Healthy Team: If someone is a poor fit for your culture, consider ending the working relationship. It may seem harsh, but keeping him or her on will only lead to negative results for everyone involved.
These guidelines have helped us at Pursuit Promotional Management create a culture of passion and drive. Although it was not an overnight process, it has definitely proven worthwhile.
