{Meeting} Süddeutsche Newspaper panel discussion with Simone Janson: Cultural Fit at TALENTpro

That employee too Company should fit, is actually a truism. And yet the technical term “cultural fit” is a hot trend topic in the HR scene. We are now discussing this on a panel of the Süddeutschen Zeitung.

What is Cultural Fit?

Cultural Fit, according to Wikipedia, “cultural agreement is a term from personal psychology.

It describes the correspondence between applicants and employers (companies) in terms of behavior and values. "

The team has to fit together

It's like football: Top stars bring the club no further, if they do not fit the team. The team has to fit together well in the end.

And so it goes in recruiting: Who wants to put together a great team and keep, must ensure that employees with values, convictions, attitudes, etc. fit together. But what exactly does that mean?

Employees have to fit into the company's values

For example, the right values ​​and working methods. After all, it's no longer just about good grades, the right CV and the professional qualification:

Companies are increasingly looking for future employees to fit into their corporate culture in terms of their values ​​and ways of working.

Trend theme Cultural Fit

Originally it was the other way round: An increasing proportion of applicants, above all the "Young Professionals" of the Y and Z generations, had the claim that the potential employer suits their own values ​​and wishes.

As a result, it has become a trend for companies to specifically advertise their values ​​with exactly the right employees. As a rule, they ask the following basic questions:

  • Does the candidate fit in with our corporate culture?
  • Does an applicant fit our values?

Values ​​- a spongy topic?

The whole theme of values ​​I personally find a little bit spongy. Which company does not like propagating values?

And in many companies, too, the topic of values ​​seems a bit grafted and hollow - motto: super values, but nothing behind it.

Cultural Fit and Diversity

Finally, you have to ask yourself what the topic “cultural fit” means for diversity. Because even today it is a problem that in many companies only people with similar opinions are hired. Trends such as the recruitment of employees by employees exacerbate this danger.

In addition, the topic carries the risk that companies will now make decisions based on gut instincts even more than they already have. Fortunately, there have long been evidence-based approaches that make the cultural fit more objective and tangible.

The discussion: It's about the best elf

On the panel of Süddeutschen Newspapers are now discussing experts on whether and to what extent this approach can be implemented in the recruiting context. What solutions are there and how do they work in the process?
