Organisations are increasingly turning to the concept of “culture fit” for successful recruiting and hiring. Ensuring that new hires have values and beliefs that align with those of the existing organisational culture can be even more important than skills, qualifications, and experience when it comes to successful hiring decisions. For example, an organisation that thrives on teamwork among its employees should aim to hire candidates who enjoy and do well working within a team setting. An employee who prefers explicit instruction and supervision would struggle in an organisation that emphasises employee empowerment and autonomy. Employees whose values are congruent with those of their organisation are more satisfied with their jobs, more productive, and tend to turnover less often.
