How to Hire Someone Aligned With the Company’s Mission
It’s the question that every company seems to be asking: How do you find and keep top talent?
One of the biggest mistakes made by growing companies is rushing to hire someone without making certain that he or she is the right cultural fit. The next mistake is not taking the time to engage and develop employees once they’re on board.
By cultural fit, I don’t mean a candidate’s sense of humor or sparkling personality. I’m talking about whether or not this individual understands your organization’s values and practices them on a daily basis. And most important, do they have the potential to enhace the trajectory of co-workers and the business alike?
