Culture is a force multiplier for the outcomes that matter most to your business and, when allowed to function properly, can become a powerful differentiator for your organization. TPC The Payroll Company HR Consultants has intentionally created a “Noncorporate Culture.” We bring the human connection and collaboration between your business and the team you partner with to achieve your business growth.
What is “Culture”?
Culture can mean a lot of things: a company’s values, beliefs, practices, etc. We believe the best definition is “Culture is what happens when no-one is looking.” Sometimes employees are given detailed instructions and procedures which must be followed. They follow the instructions because they are being monitored or recorded. But what happens when no one is watching? To truly serve customers your employees must be able decide for themselves how to help a customer out of a jam, solve a problem or make a difficult decision? That’s where culture comes in.
In a small business, culture matters. Creativity, ingenuity, and entrepreneurism are the backbone of our economy. Nearly twenty-seven million small businesses in the United States generate about 50 percent of our GDP. Their creativity and drive make this country an economic leader. But just because you have a great idea or innovation does not mean you don’t need help with the rules and regulations behind payroll, taxes, time keeping and Human Resources, much less how to create a collective culture in this field.
As your company grows, you need to clarify and reinforce your culture. This is challenging to do as the complexity of business knowledge you need to effectively lead continues to grow. TPC The Payroll Company, HR Consultants can successfully guide you on best practices while supporting all your back office needs so you can be true to your company’s core culture and functions.
TPC The Payroll Company, HR Consultants has a “Noncorporate Culture.” What this means is your account representative is not only an expert in their field with years of experience on all things payroll and HR but they also are flexible and independent thinkers. Your TPC account representative is empowered to work with you to help you decide what is right for your business. They know your business and have the flexibility to do what is right and best for your business. Because of this they care about your business and want it to succeed. In a corporate culture you work with a representative that can only work within standard policies and procedures handed down from a corporate headquarters 20 levels removed from knowing anything about YOUR needs. Because of this they are not invested in your business and your success.
So, what does all this mean for your company culture? It is simple, with TPC you have a partner that is invested in your success so you can focus on what you do best to take your business and your team to new heights.
