Description
While organizational culture has been touted since the early 1990’s as essential for business success, there has been little connection between organizational culture, individual “fit” and the employment branding process. We have found that having the knowledge of “who you are” and “who you are not” from a cultural perspective, can support the creation of an employment experience that is both authentic and congruent. By paying attention to congruence, alignment and fit, organizations can create an employment brand that will attract, retain and repel employees. This process of ensuring “fit” leads to better placements and an increase in the ROI of recruitment and retention programs.

The talent acquisition game has significantly changed. With an abundance of candidates to choose from…how do you find the right “fit”? Candidate alignment to vision, mission, values and culture are the key to weeding out, in round one, only the individuals that share the same beliefs and mind set as the organization. Professionals, who play a role in the development or acquisition of talent will gain a significant understanding of how to quickly diagnose organizational culture and how to determine who the “right fit” is.

This cultural diagnostic can be done by collecting quantitative and qualitative data related to cultural dimensions. We suggest collecting both so the stories support the numbers and the numbers support the stories. Key elements of culture can be found in these dimensions:

•       Identity – employment brand
•       Leadership
•       Relationships
•       Employee Engagement
•       Communication
•       Infrastructure
•       Change Management
•       Finance
•       Values Alignment
