High Staff Turnover Will Cripple Your Business

How much is your staff churn actually costing you?

Have you thought about how it affects morale? 

How much knowledge are you letting just walk out the door?

Ignoring your workplace culture could already be costing you a great deal.

3 Problems You Can Fix By Focusing On Workplace Culture


CEO’s that focus on workplace culture benefit with a significant advantage when looking to attract top talent, with candidates saying company culture is the number one deciding factor to take a role. (1) And we know retention can be increased through culture with 73% of professionals have left a job due to poor cultural fit. (2)


Workplace Culture directly impacts the bottom line with research showing that happy employees are 12% more productive, sales increase by 20% and customer ratings increase by 10% when creating an engaged and productive workplace. (3) 


When people are allowed to take risks, feel supported and safe, feel like they belong and are valued members of the team, they will start to innovate and share their ideas. If your culture allows innovation to occur, your business begins to develop your own competitive advantage.

Why Is Workplace Culture So Important?

We know what it feels like to watch the thousands of dollars you just invested in someone walk out the door.

And we also know what it’s like to feel unheard and just a number.

Where To From Here?

Workplace Culture Change pathway

Here at Culture Shift, we know you’re the kind of CEO that wants it all.

A high performing organisation, and a team of great people to lead. For you to achieve this greatness, you need to identify your own strengths and surround yourself with others who will utilise theirs to help you win.

The problem when it comes to culture creation, however, is that too many leaders think they need to keep employees happy by putting beer on tap, table tennis in the break room and letting them work whenever they want to.

However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Because what we DO know is that people want to contribute to a purpose, feel valued, be heard and go home feeling like they’ve done a good day’s work. Consequently, this is where your workplace culture fits.

We know what happens to a business when poor culture hits the media. Furthermore, we have seen the devastating effects poor workplace culture has on people’s lives. That’s why, when you have the first red flags appearing in the form of higher staff turnover, lower productivity, increased conflict and a rise in absenteeism, you need to focus on your culture immediately.

How We Work With You

Firstly, we will undertake an organisational wide culture survey to gather insights about your current workplace culture.

Secondly, we then assess the strengths of your leaders by using psychometric profiling and 360° surveys. As a result, we almost immediately recognise patterns between your leaders and their impact on your company culture.

Armed with this intel, we set about creating an internal team who will lead your culture change – including you, the CEO. From there, we identify what kind of culture you want to create, develop a strategy which includes formal leadership training if required, and set about implementing. Our system has inbuilt ROI measurements so you can easily report back to the board on your progress.

It’s time to reach out and let us help you to develop the workplace culture you know will lead you and your organisation to become a sustainable, profitable and attractive business.
