Qualitative elements like company culture and team cohesiveness are also important. But, exactly, what does it take to be a great place to work? It all starts with establishing an atmosphere where employees have the autonomy to use their particular skills and unique experiences to accomplish their best job and achieve their greatest potential – and every organization will have its own version of this. Besides, listening to employees about what they want in their workplace is equally important, and so is cultivating a progressive, diverse and inclusive meritocracy where everyone, regardless of rank or tenure, is allowed and encouraged to offer input and participate.
