    Failure Due to Culture Mismatch - Don't Fall into This Trap

    IMPACT Hiring Solutions Logo

    Have you ever failed due to a cultural mismatch?

    Ever have one view of a company from the interview - but it turns out to be something different?

    One of the greatest failure points for new hires, after the inability to deliver the expected outcomes, is a cultural mismatch.

    You're NOT a bad person - You're just NOT a fit for this particular culture - value structure, pace, energy, demands, level of change, resources provided, how people communicate, what gets tolerated as dysfunctional behavior, etc.

    Listen to our recent audio recording from our weekly radio show, titled Hiring Top Talent - Determining a Cultural Fit, that uploaded as a podcast to our HIRE and RETAIN Blog that talks to the issue of ensuring a strong cultural match (what most would term "fit").

    Don't fall victim to taking a job in one company out of desperation and then discovering you cannot "fit" in. Another article you might want to read on this subject from our Blog is titled, "Hiring Frustration #5 - Poor Cultural Fit.

    1. Often people equate their worth or potential by their own reasoning and not by which the employer places value on the job itself. It's difficult for the applicant to understand why they may not get a job, but understanding how the company views that job and the skill set and the money they deem it worth has more to do with someone getting the job than the actual applicant.
