CULTURE & VALUES – YOUR FOUNDATION
When hiring, most companies focus on determining if the job applicant is a good fit for the position. Much effort is put into finding out if the person has right skills and experience. Unfortunately, many companies have a harder time determining if the applicant will be a good fit with the organization–which includes fit with the culture, values, mission, and team dynamics. Occupational psychologists and HR organizational development experts call this “person-organization fit” (or P-O fit).
- Cultural fit is the likelihood that someone will reflect and/or be able to adapt to the core beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that make up your organization.
- Poor culture fit leads to turnover, and can cost an organization between 50-60% of the person’s annual salary, according to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
- Employees who fit well with their organization, coworkers, and supervisor have greater job satisfaction, are more likely to remain with their organization, and show superior job performance (Harvard Business Review).
- Culture and values CAN be measured.
