We all know that people differ in their personalities, attitudes, along with interests. For example, some people like to spend their free time peddling down the road on their bicycle, while others would rather wear a jedi costume and attack their friends with lightsabres at a science fiction convention. What many don’t realize is that these interests transfer from play-time to the work day. An understanding of a company’s individual personality is profoundly important in maximizing employee’s happiness and productivity at work!
Employees spend a third of their lives at work, and in our fast-paced world, people are moving around from job to job more and more, seeking a company that allows them to maximize their potential, earn more money, or achieve a better work-life balance. Employees will prioritize them differently yet they are still important factors for a successful employee. Whatever the priorities, work feeds into many different aspects, it influences employees self-identity, self-esteem, and opportunities for personal growth. If work was just about making money, it wouldn’t matter so much where we worked but for most of us, it’s about far more than that. This is where cultural fit comes into play.
Discovering and hiring to your company’s culture will increase productivity, happiness, and retention.
