The Importance of Cultural Fit: Hiring Quality Talent for the Long-Term

Posted October 10, 2017

According to author and HR consultant Leigh Birnham, who wrote Seven Hidden Reasons Employees Leave, the number one reason that new employees fail is due to a lack of organizational cultural fit. This, unfortunately, means two things: Recruiters have to go back to the drawing board to re-fill the position and, of course, the employee has to begin their job search all over again. Without a doubt, it’s definitely a lose-lose situation. But all is not lost. With a more organizational-specific, scientific approach to recruiting that emphasizes retention, recruiters can turn things around; thereby hiring quality talent that is the best organizational cultural fit for the long-term. Enter Nextaff.
