Building trust with your employees in the workplace is vital. The best way to earn the trust of your employees is to be transparent about your company and its operations. Transparency in the workplace is strongly associated with successful organizations and sustainable business development.
At Ascension 6 we believe that transparency is essential for all relationships within the company, both employees and customers alike. In this post we discuss the benefits of being transparent within the workplace and how it is vital for long-lasting business relationships.
What does transparency mean?
Transparency means everything is made clear to all parties within your workplace. It means that all employees know the ins and outs of the company’s actions, transactions, and even its financial situation. This openness builds trust, which is essential for any successful relationship.
Why is transparency so important?
Transparency enables every member inside an organization to share information openly, without fear of retribution. This reduces the chances of corruption. It also ensures that everyone is accountable for their actions, even management. As a result, engagement and communication between staff members will improve. People are also highly motivated to work when they are made aware of the reasons behind any given work instruction.
Transparency and teamwork
Every company relies on teamwork. It is essential that people in your workplace can work together and trust each other. Transparency will allow for this trust to develop. When there are no secrets or alternative agendas it is easier for individuals to connect. If employees feel that they can rely on their colleagues and managers, it is more likely that tasks will get completed and productivity will increase.
Without transparency, there is less trust and teammates cannot depend on each other. When this happens, individuals tend to concentrate on their own personal objectives instead of working together as a team.
Transparency creates a better workplace environment
Transparency makes a working environment interesting and enjoyable. Honesty within a workplace, makes employees feel valued. Every person likes to know their purpose within an organization. Transparency creates a safe and positive environment as most people do not like to be surrounded by secrecy. When people feel safe in an environment, they are more likely to be creative, and explore new ideas freely.
Transparency and company values
All employees should have a good understanding of your company’s values and communication styles. If all plans and goals are the same from the bottom to top, there is less room for misunderstanding, ambiguity, or surprises. Consequently, expectations are clearly defined, and your business will run a lot smoother.
