How to Build Great Workplace Culture

“Being a great place to work is the difference between being a good company and a great company.” – Brian Kristofek

At Radius, we truly believe our success comes from high performance teams. From the Rates desk, to the Warehouse, to our Admin staff, Radius Logistics is comprised of industry veterans and transportation specialists to build one of the best third party logistics teams in the supply chain business. Our clients rest assured knowing every department is focused on supporting their success by delivering exceptional service.

We believe that a healthy workplace culture directly correlates to the high level of performance we see from our all-star team. In turn, this prominent focus on morale helps us attract talented new employees.

Now you may be wondering, what makes up this incredible work culture?

Here are the 5 secret ingredients.

  1. Leadership

Sometimes people don’t quit jobs, they quit managers. With this in mind, we’ve learned to ensure that our leaders are constantly driving efficiency and streamlining procedures to keep their team happy. While the bulk of their efforts are spent leading their teams to success, we also require leaders to spend time on the front lines so they can personally understand the roles in which they manage.

  1. Training Programs

No train, no gain. Zig Ziglar once said the only thing worse than training employees and having them leave, is not training employees and having them stay. New employees at Radius are trained for a minimum of 4-6 weeks before they do any customer work. We strongly believe in comprehensive training programs that will equip our new recruits with the proper coaching and support needed for long-term success in their role.

  1. People & Environment

At Radius, we hire for attitude, aptitude, and cultural fit. If you were to walk through the office today, you would most certainly experience the unique charisma each person brings. You would see that special spark the management team must’ve seen in them during the hiring process. We believe that a bad hire can throw the entire team off track, and that a good hire can skyrocket our operations to new heights.

  1. Communications

From daily order activity to weekly staff bonus updates, we believe in the importance of transparency in sharing information. It has been proven that teams who communicate are more accurate in their work and quicker to complete projects. It’s imperative to healthy work culture because communication naturally fosters trust between teammates, which creates an environment for long-lasting professional relationships.

  1. Rewarding Success

Recognized employees are happy employees! Appreciation is an essential part of human need in the workplace and reminds other team members that all job roles are key to our success as a whole. At Radius, our entire team enjoys a share of the company’s profits when we achieve our fiscal goals each month. While money isn’t everything, it’s a great motivator that we believe pushes our staff the extra mile to work aggressively with the freight and avoid costly mistakes.Being part of this amazing Radius culture requires a strong desire to go beyond the call of duty to proactively and effectively solve problems and help our clients take their businesses to the next level.
