The article focuses on the importance of creating a healthy workplace culture which is a key factor to the success of a business organisation. A healthy workplace culture is a culture where enterprise thrives. Enterprise is what makes organisations successful. Enterprise prospers where employees are highly motivated and hungry for success. The aim should be for an inclusive culture where everyone feels a part of the business where everyone is just as important as the next person; and all employees work towards common goals for the overall success of the business. In a healthy culture, team spirit is strong and employees support each other. Praise, thanks and recognition must also be the norm. Closing the effort/reward gap is another way to improve workplace culture.
