Is Your Company Culture Costing You More Than You Realise?

In the world we live in today, the culture of a company, the lived values and quality of communication within it are not just important, they are essential. They are the lifeblood that attracts, retains, and motivates the best talent. But have you ever paused to consider the financial implications of your organisation’s culture ?

According to PerformHR Australia, a poor culture can have significant financial implications. Recruitment costs, for example, can be substantial, with the average cost of a hire estimated to be anything from $5000 to 20% of the employee’s salary. Furthermore, studies show disengaged workers have 37% higher absenteeism, 49% more accidents and made 60% more errors. This is where culture can cost our organisations more than we realize.

But what if we could change that? What if we could turn the tide and make our workplaces not just places of work, but places of growth, development, and inspiration?

At our event, we will embark on a journey to do just that. Drawing on the wisdom of DISC Flow®, we will explore the art of building genuine connections, creating effective relationships, and enhancing communication. DISC Flow® is a tool that marries behavioural science and emotional intelligence, empowering us to understand ourselves and others better, and to make conscious choices in our interactions. The result? Improved communication, stronger relationships, a more engaged workforce, and a culture that positively impacts the bottom line.

Together, we will delve into the financial implications of company culture and communication. Our host and leadership expert Jessica Schubert will share her insights on identifying and addressing the cultural and communication issues that could be silently draining your bottom line. They will also share strategies for fostering a positive culture that drives productivity, engagement, and profitability. You will walk awake with insights, ideas and strategies to facilitate engaging interactions, conversation, debriefs and workshops.

This event is more than just a networking opportunity. It’s a chance to share experiences, gain valuable insights, and leave with actionable strategies to enhance your company culture and communication, and boost your organisation’s financial performance.
