How can you attract top talent, and create a workforce that goes the extra mile for your company? The answer isn’t salary, perks, or bonuses. It’s culture.

Making the effort to build and invest in a positive business culture is no small task; it can drain time, resources, and money. But research suggests that the ROI on a happy workforce can be measured in dollars as well as satisfied, secure staff.

According to The Journal of Workplace Behavioral Health, good culture-building activities successfully cultivate a companywide commitment to satisfying customers. Other benefits include enhanced performance, reduced staff turnover, increased job satisfaction, greater employee engagement, fewer errors and the enviable status as a workplace of choice.

A 2011 academic study through the London School of Economics found that costs spent promoting well-being in the workplace represented a substantial annual return on investment of more than 9 to 1, due to increased productivity and reduced absenteeism.

The jury is officially in: happy and healthy employees are good business in a big way.

And building a great company culture doesn’t just happen. If you’re a business owner, it all starts with you, with former MIT professor Edgar Schein once commenting that the only thing of real importance that leaders do is to create and manage culture.

So how do you create great workplace culture? CEO of Mindvalley, Vishen Lakhiani, is the man officially standing at the intersection of mindfulness and business, and has workplace culture down to a fine art.
