Emphasizing Culture Over Cool in the Workplace

December 27, 2018 | By Gina Jessica Smith

Workplace perks such as hammocks, foosball tables, and nap pods are popping up with more regularity in companies that want to appeal to younger workers. While they may seem cool to prospective employees, it is important that businesses not confuse these draws for a strong workplace culture.

Companies that want to attract and retain top talent must focus more on establishing and maintaining a positive workplace culture. So what exactly can today's organizations do in order to truly be a culture-first company?
