How to Create a Great Social Climate at Work
Social climate is also known as engagement, morale and teamwork. Three climate factors ─ a sense of community, a shared vision and a positive outlook ─ contribute to both individual well-being and to important organizational indicators such as customer service, innovation, employee engagement, and teamwork. Where they are noticeably absent and people don’t get along, well-being suffers and productivity slows. This training defines each social climate element and recommends strategies for improving the work atmosphere.
The 4-week training is delivered in a presentation video (41 minutes total), video testimonials (10 minutes total) and brief audio podcast episodes (27 minutes total). Ideally, participants will devote one hour per week to viewing/listening and to taking recommended actions. The weekly training assessments examine actions to improve your workgroup’s social climate. The assessments also help to develop a plan for strengthening the social climate.
The concepts featured in this training are based on over thirty years of research and work by Robert Allen, PhD and Judd Allen, PhD.
