Cultural fit’s a key consideration in recruitment

More than two-thirds (67 percent) of employers say a candidate’s cultural fit is ‘very important’ when looking for new staff, according to research released from totaljobs. Comment Matthew Harradine, Director – totaljobs
In a recent study, totaljobs talked to over 100 employers and found that only 1 percent said cultural fit was not important in the hiring process. This is compared to almost 1 in 5 employers who say they wouldn’t hire a candidate if they were not the right cultural fit for their organisation.
When it comes to their culture, there is agreement amongst employers, with 78 percent describing their culture as friendly. This is significantly higher than 47 percent which describe it as professional.
