We specialise in several types of fit profiling, in addition to work culture fit:
- Values fit – useful measure for startup selection processes
- Personality fit – similar to cultural fit
- Team fit
- Role fit
- Career fit
In 2018, the ongoing organisational trend of cultural fit becoming increasingly important. What does this mean for you if you are applying to an organisation with a distinct culture? Company culture will be a key topic of conversation amongst the top Executives of many of the graduate employers.
Start-ups value agile working and modern approaches, such as flexible and managing projects via a sprints-based methodology. We all know about the culture of design obsession at Apple and the research-time perks of working at Google. Many of the high-profile US tech leaders, such as Netflix, measure their values and their culture.
Why, is company culture so important to these companies? Large employers in the technology industry often struggle with recruiting top talent with the highly specialised IT skills they need. In London and the West Coast. Any applicant can ‘sample’ how others have experienced their contact by checking Glassdoor ratings.. which certainly explains why many company CEOs now obsess over keeping this high. And yes Google’s at 4.4 is exceptionally high!
The allure and difficulty of getting through the Google application process both add to the company’s allure for IT graduates. all of this public perception is part of the company culture since new joiners bring that set of beliefs with them when they join.
Then once these specialists have joined, the company must keep their specific skill sets up-to-date. It must having a positive working environment to keep these highly valued staff engaged.
