 Kaloutas Loves Cookies: Why a Positive Company Culture is Essential for Profit and Success

What goes into mak­ing a busi­ness tru­ly suc­cess­ful and prof­itable in the long-term? As you can imag­ine, there’s no one answer. Plen­ty of fac­tors play into how well a com­pa­ny does, includ­ing the obvi­ous ones like deliv­er­ing high-qual­i­ty work and hir­ing excep­tion­al peo­ple. And, one vari­able in this equa­tion often goes over­looked: com­pa­ny cul­ture. Whether you’re a com­mer­cial paint­ing com­pa­ny or any­thing else, cul­ture is crucial.

The term com­pa­ny cul­ture” may seem abstract and flow­ery, but in many ways it is the foun­da­tion of every­thing a busi­ness is and does. A neg­a­tive or ill-defined com­pa­ny cul­ture can lead an enter­prise to ruin. On the oth­er hand, a pos­i­tive com­pa­ny cul­ture can yield con­tin­u­al growth, trust, and prof­it. This is a les­son we at Kaloutas have learned over the years, so we can con­fi­dent­ly tell you how and why a pos­i­tive com­pa­ny cul­ture is essen­tial for prof­it and success.

The Ben­e­fits of Good Com­pa­ny Culture

All In It Together

Any strong cul­ture is made up of mul­ti­ple indi­vid­u­als with shared val­ues work­ing towards a com­mon goal. When like-mind­ed peo­ple unite in this way, they can achieve so much more than they could on their own. In a work set­ting, this man­i­fests in many ways, such as increased pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, the devel­op­ment of new ideas and solu­tions, and oppor­tu­ni­ties for edu­ca­tion and growth.

At Kaloutas, we tru­ly believe in the pow­er of team­work. We hire unique, dri­ven indi­vid­u­als who are able to come togeth­er and bring out the best aspects of one anoth­er. This uni­ty allows our com­pa­ny to work with more and more clients and make strides in pro­duc­tiv­i­ty each year.

Cul­ture is Contagious

When we focus sole­ly on the neg­a­tive, we can for­get just how pow­er­ful pos­i­tiv­i­ty can be. A sim­ple smile, com­pli­ment, or respect­ful head nod can make us feel ener­gized and encour­age us to bring that same light to oth­ers. Like a con­ta­gion, a pos­i­tive com­pa­ny cul­ture spreads far beyond its ini­tial host, affect­ing the entire com­pa­ny and every enti­ty it comes into con­tact with.

And, unlike a virus, this con­ta­gion is good. The fam­i­ly-like cul­ture at Kaloutas has allowed us to real­ize high lev­els of employ­ee reten­tion, and let us grow togeth­er. Like­wise, our part­ners and cus­tomers can’t help but feel the warmth of our cul­ture. From indus­tri­al floor­ing con­tracts to main­te­nance paint­ing jobs, we have estab­lished and main­tained so many rela­tion­ships over the years thanks to this environment.

Lead­ing Towards Leadership

Final­ly, a pos­i­tive com­pa­ny cul­ture encour­ages upward mobil­i­ty. Any busi­ness that wants to grow must invest in its employ­ees, help­ing those who wish to climb the lad­der of suc­cess along­side it. The more respon­si­bil­i­ties staff mem­bers take on, the more val­ue they bring to the enterprise.

One of our main goals at Kaloutas is edu­ca­tion. In addi­tion to our exten­sive train­ing for new recruits, we offer unique learn­ing pro­grams, called Kaloutas Uni­ver­si­ty (KU), as well as the Field Lead­er­ship Pro­gram, which help employ­ees learn about all aspects of the indus­try from vet­er­an com­mer­cial paint­ing con­trac­tors and oth­er pro­fes­sion­als. These efforts have helped lift new employ­ees into lead­er­ship roles over time, strength­en­ing our cul­ture and success.

Cul­ti­vate a Pos­i­tive Com­pa­ny Culture

Speak­ing from expe­ri­ence, a pos­i­tive com­pa­ny cul­ture is invalu­able for every busi­ness. There are so many ways to cul­ti­vate this atmos­phere. You might hold week­ly lun­cheons, rec­og­nize birth­days, sur­prise your team with cook­ies, donuts, or oth­er treats, etc. Noth­ing is too small and it all con­tributes to the big­ger pic­ture. If you want to know more about us, our peo­ple, and our cul­ture, or inquire about our indus­tri­al ser­vices, con­tact us and give us a call at 9785321414.
