A well-defined and shared company culture gives employees direction and a sense of purpose. This, combined with recruitment and retention of top talent, stronger collaboration, and teamwork, leads to greater productivity and profitability overall. When recruiting, cultural fit is as important as skills, experience, education, and compensation requirements. A good cultural fit means that the candidate’s beliefs and behaviors align with the company’s core values and culture. A compatible candidate will be more likely to become engaged and productive.
