Amplifying company culture
Your culture should be more than just a few words on the wall – it should promote a genuine feeling of community and celebrate the individuals who make up your company culture. It's important to not only include core values in your internal communication strategy, but to highlight the ways in which your organisation can best execute them. Practise what you preach, lead by example and integrate your culture into Workplace.

Workplace offers a variety of automatic badges and admin-awarded badges that you can use to recognise employees for their roles and achievements. Admins can also create custom badges to recognise employees for their company-specific achievements and help reinforce your unique company values.
System admins, content moderators, account managers and any admin with a custom role containing the "Manage badges" permission can manage badges from the Admin Panel. Learn how to create and award badges in the Help Centre.
Encourage employees to recognise their peers for their hard work and support with Workplace's Thanks feature. When employees are able to provide this kind of positive reinforcement to their colleagues, managers can better identify high performance that they may have missed, the company culture improves and employee engagement improves along with it.
