Companies want productive, committed, and engaged employees. People want meaningful work in a workplace guided by values that are in sync with theirs. Candidates who are selected on the basis of culture fit—in addition to job fit—contribute faster, perform better, and stay longer with the organization. So how do you create such a workplace?

This webcast offers a fresh formula for screening for culture fit. You will learn powerful and practical tools to map your organization’s core culture and audit the alignment of your hiring practices with your culture. Build a workplace where employees understand the culture, personally connect to it, and want to live by it. Play a strategic role in your organization by managing and sustaining your organization’s valuable hidden asset: its culture. Use your unique culture to drive your organization’s success.

After this webcast, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand the elements of an organization’s core culture—the purpose, philosophy, and priorities.
  • Define the core culture of your company using the core culture interview guide.
  • Align your hiring practices with your core culture using the recruitment and selection alignment audit.
  • Implement a hiring process that sustains the culture, enhances engagement and retention, and improves the bottom line.
