If you have been in the business world for any amount of time you have undoubtedly read dozens of articles or books on what makes great companies. I have worked with and studied HR leaders over many years and have come to my own conclusion. Books, leaders, and HR professionals all have their own ideas and phrase their answers in different ways, but it all boils down to this. A great company achieves excellence in these three areas:
Great Companies Have Great People
Sounds simple, but this is probably the hardest part. Finding great people is constantly in motion. So how do these companies accomplish excellence with their people?
- Opportunities to learn and grow professionally
Great companies have managers look for ways to match their employees’ skills and passions with the organization’s needs. They find out what their employees are interested in learning or accomplishing, and they help advance careers by promoting their strengths.
- Work with people they respect
Employees in great companies trust the people they work for. Great companies hire for cultural fit. Skills can be taught but fitting into the company culture can’t.
- Create a Culture of Trust
Employees are confident that they will be treated with fairness, respect, and honesty. Trust is a powerful retention tool and great companies honor that fact.
Great Companies Have a Great Product/Service
Everyone is united and work together on one team to produce an excellent product, provide a valuable service, or create something that all mutually consider of great value. Employees all share a strong belief, passion and faith in the product or service. Both employees and customers know that the mission of the company is enriched by their contribution.
Great Companies Have Purpose
Last, but not least, great companies share two commons purposes. First: They have a clearly defined purpose that all understands and considers important. And if asked, every employee could tell you the role they play in achieving that purpose. Second: Create a working environment that supports their valuable employees and rewards excellence, honesty, mutual respect, and fairness.
The bottom line a great company must achieve excellence with its people, its product/service, and its purpose. It’s not easy to create this significant and powerful thing. It requires real focus and consistent effort on the part of the company’s leadership and a buy-in from every employee.
