Strategically Hiring to Support Company Culture: Top Tips
Every organisation has its unique style of working and communicating between team members, which often contributes to its culture, as well as the company beliefs, ideologies and values.
A healthy workplace culture encourages the employees to stay motivated, productive and loyal to the company as each employee is encouraged and rewarded.
So, how can you continue bringing individuals into the organisation whom will fit you company culture? Here are Hubb Consultants top four tips in doing just that:
- It is important to have a clear understanding of your workplace value and goals and hiring individuals who share the same motivations. Rather than simply focusing on the prospective employees’ credentials, assessing how their personality will fit into the company culture is critical.
- Understand that successful strategies cannot be rushed: Even if it is simply your hiring strategy, it’s important to have enough time to work through the company’s needs and wants, and to develop a strategy to reach these goals.
- Remember to communicate well and keep your current team in the loop: A great way to so is by allowing team members to learn other roles and see how each role benefits the organisation, creating a holistic understanding of how certain roles fit in with others.
- Develop a way to keep your team engaged: Surveys and regular check-in meetings are a great start to this, as it provides open lines of communication, facilitating engagement and showing you care about their opinion for the future hiring of candidates.
Your organisations workplace culture is the unique element that differentiates you from competitors. This culture facilitates authenticity, which is clear to stakeholders, employees, consumers and clients, and has an exponential effect on you organisation’s output. Therefore, it is essential that all employees share similar values and beliefs in order to support and carry the culture through everyday workings.
