As part of our program, participants are given a variety of tools they can bring back to their teams to increase employee engagement and improve team morale. A popular example of these is Culture Graffiti, an activity designed to spotlight each individual on a team and identify for them the qualities their coworkers most value.
Participants are given the opportunity to experience Culture Graffiti themselves during the Up Your Culture workshops, so they have a first-hand knowledge of the positive effects it has on engagement. Then they are given everything they need to bring Culture Graffiti back to their teams.
There are two ideal times for a company to invest in the Up Your Culture program. Often, it’s when turnover is higher than you want, productivity is falling, a crisis has hit your business, or you are dealing with a leadership change. Another ideal time to implement a program like this is when your company is already in pretty good shape, but you believe you could improve and grow to the next level.
Up Your Culture includes engagement surveys, a kick-off workshop for all leaders, one-on-one coaching with managers, and a series of webinars to help support the transformation.
Other companies send you workbooks or facilitate a standalone workshop. Our Culture Experts and Coaches will guide you and help keep you on track through the program.
"We increased revenue 55% in 2019 year-over-year and exceeded budget in November and December. This is a measurable thing, and I attribute a significant portion of this to the cultural improvements. I’m a fan of the program and appreciate the support."
"This [Up Your Culture Program] gave me knowledge that I believe makes me a stronger leader with a better understanding of my organization as a whole, skills that I can use to continue to grow, develop, and engage my team in a variety of ways, and a renewed focus on actively creating a wonderful place to work for my fellow employees each and every day.”
"You can have the best product, even the best people, but if you don’t have a shared vision on how you operate, you will never maximize performance. The Up Your Culture Workshop assessed our current Culture, and then provided concrete strategies on how to improve productivity. No Voodoo here. They just took the abstract and made it real in a way that everyone can understand their true importance to our Mission."
"In all my years in running organizations and managing people, the Up Your Culture Survey and Workshop we did was one of the most comprehensive and thorough things I have ever been involved with to help a company, an organization, a department, or any type of team. It was thorough to the point that it helps everyone and anyone, and in ways that make it interesting and not just another boring survey and workshop.
I would recommend it to everyone, as I guarantee it can help everyone in one way or another, and I bet most in more ways than they would ever know unless they did it. All thumbs up to the Up Your Culture Survey and Workshop!"
"Ever get the feeling that things around the office are good... not great, but you can't put your finger on what it is? After a survey and a 1-day workshop, we were given very clear instruction on not only where we were lacking, but how to fix it! I highly recommend the Up Your Culture program to any business that wants to increase productivity and have fun doing it!"
“Since I’ve gone through the training course for Up Your Culture, things in our building and hallways have been healthier and happier week by week”
"Taking the time to really focus in on what our core values are, why they are important, and how we can better make sure we’re incorporating them into everything we do, has been an exciting, challenging, and necessary exercise for our leadership team."
“I’ve mentioned to many people at our company that The Up Your Culture program may be the single-most important undertaking I’ve been a part of over the last 11 years here. I never thought our culture was poor, but this program helped me realize how much more we could do to improve our culture and create an environment that is rooted in our Core Values; Integrity, Passion, and Innovation.“
