Fridays in the Lab: 3 Tips to Build a Great Office Culture

Posted by Erin Borgerson on October 5, 2012

Creating a good office culture is a critical piece to the puzzle of hiring and retaining star employees. If you ask any millennial, despite their area of expertise, chances are they would say their dream company to work for is Apple or Google. But why? What do these companies have that others don't?

The answer is simple: A strong work culture.

They expect a lot from a company - not just casual Friday, but aspects that make them love going to work each day. We're not saying millennials are whiny (many of the Hireologists are millennials), they just work best in an environment that is supportive and inspiring.
