GOOD FIT = HIGH RETENTION
Cultural fit, as a filter for hiring, is not a new way to screen potential candidates. Hiring managers have always done so on an intuitive level. But, today's enterprises have – or should have – greater clarity about their values and mission. When you hire for cultural fit, you hire employees that reflect the core beliefs, attitudes and behaviors that drive your organization. The more successful you are at this, the more you'll create win-win situations: attracting more "likeminded" talent and losing fewer employees due to awkward cultural fit.
CULTURE IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS
Turnover due to poor culture fit can cost an organization between 50-60% of the person’s annual salary, says the Harvard Business Review. Conversely, employees who fit well with their organization enjoy greater job satisfaction, perform better and stay longer. In short, happy employees are good for business. Learn how incorporating this thinking into your hiring practices/processes can benefit your bottom line.
