Organizational Culture

  • Organizational culture includes beliefs and shared assumptions which determine working and behavioural norms. Culture has intangible and tangible aspects.
  • There is no one right or best culture. An effective culture supports your organization’s mandate and associated strategies.
  • Incorporating organizational fit when recruiting both contract and permanent staff will positively affect attraction, selection, and (in the case of permanent staff) retention of these key people.
  • Recruiting for organizational fit pays off. Studies show a good person-organization fit will reduce starting pay expectations, reduce turnover by as much as 30%, and significantly improve performance.
