These days, with tech behemoths like Google and Facebook boasting about all their on-site amenities and the cultures they foster amongst their employees, the bar has been raised for companies of all sizes. What makes a “good” company culture, of course, varies with company size, industry placement, core values and more. According to an article by Entrepreneur, the difference between a successful and unsuccessful company is the knowledge that when hiring new recruits, how they mesh with the culture is just as important (if not more) as their skillset.
In the Entrepreneur article, Collective Bias’ own co-founder and CCO, Amy Callahan, gave her two-cents on how to measure if someone will be a positive fit for your company culture. She touched on how CB utilizes “culture fit” interviews where 8 employees interact with the interviewee to appraise their personality against our company core values.
“A company’s culture can get lost as you grow,” Amy says in the article. “I can teach people hard skills. I want to find people who share the values we prize as a company, like teamwork, community, being frugal and scrappy.”
