Have you ever tried to change the culture of your organisation? Wouldn’t hiring for cultural fit in the first place be better?
Some of the consulting work we do centres around changing an organisation’s culture – something which is ingrained and difficult to budge.
But what if you could set the culture from the moment you hire somebody?
If culture is ‘the way we do things around here’, then it’s not beyond your power to design it for your organisation.
One place to start is with your hiring and selection processes.
Technical ability and soft skills usually take pride of place when we hire.
While I don’t dispute these are basic and important, ignoring cultural fit can be where the seemingly perfect match comes unstuck. How can you avoid this trap?
