Hiring for cultural fit: Putting core values into practice

Culture is what makes people come to the office every day with a smile on their face. Culture is what makes people put in the extra effort when it is required, help out a coworker when they need it, chase the mission the company is chasing. Culture is everything.

Unfortunately what I see happening ever so often is that people tend to fall in the trap of hiring people with an amazing education background or work experience. Totally neglecting culture. What happens if you keep hiring candidates that seem to be a good job-fit, without a culture-fit is that eventually they will leave, or your precious culture will change.

In both cases it has a massive negative impact on the company as a whole, increasing turnover rates, decreasing happiness and thereby a decrease in productivity at the workplace and so on.

I will therefore explain how to hire for culture fit, also (or maybe, especially) when working from home is the new normal.
