In small companies there most likely isn’t room in the budget for expensive TV’s, video game systems, ping pong tables, and BBQs. That does not mean that you cannot create a fun and lively corporate culture at your office.
It may take a little more creativity and imagination, but it is possible. One of the most important things to keep in mind is relationship between the CEO and the corporate culture. Your CEO should mirror your vision, mission, and culture. If you are a young and edgy t-shirt company, you cannot have a retired banker for a CEO.
Small companies take on the personality of the CEO, as do some large companies. So, make sure that the person leading your company aligns with the internal values, the team, and the direction you want the company to go.
