How do you assess a candidate’s cultural fit? Here are some interview questions and tips on how to improve your selection process and cultural fit assessment.
Collingwood are often tasked with benchmarking a candidate’s cultural fit for our clients. This can often be seen as a difficult task for some, especially when recruiting a business critical Senior role. Collingwood have worked with a wide range of clients over the years and despite candidates having a wealth of experience in the sector, a decision often comes down to the dynamics of the individual and what value they would add to the current team. Are businesses looking to take less risk in their recruitment decisions? No, in my opinion. Would you rather have a ‘disruptive superstar’ who may quickly add sales, but disrupts the team dynamics, or ensure your past success continues and you support and develop your team that have helped you achieve your this success.
