Chances are, you’ve been hearing a lot about this lately: Organizations are increasingly turning to the concept of “culture fit” for successful recruiting and hiring. In fact, 'good cultural fit' is often viewed as more important than actual technical skillset or qualifications. Employees whose values align with the organization are more satisfied with the job, more productive, and tend to stay with the organization far longer than employees that tend not to share the same values, or, are not a good culture fit. One way to ensure that the right talent is hired is to use selection assessments that measure candidates’ cultural fit.
To maintain a healthy organizational culture, cultural fit criteria must also be used to select and hire management.
