It’s critical that Members of Congress (and their senior managers) take time to consciously think about their office culture. Those who have negative or unproductive work environments tend to experience high staff turnover, low morale, insufficient institutional memory, and a lack of teamwork.
In a CMF-SHRM survey of more than 1400 congressional staff, 79% rated their overall office culture as very important to their job satisfaction, but only 41% were very satisfied with this aspect.
This webinar will cover:
- Why culture is so powerful in organizations, and especially in Congress
- 3 characteristics that define the most productive offices
- 6 ways to cultivate a positive office culture
- Negative and unproductive behaviors to be aware of
- First-hand perspectives from congressional managers on how they have cultivated loyal, committed, and motivated staffs.
