Culture First, Skills Second: Recruitment For Long-Term Success

Posted by Dr. Zivit Inbar on 1 November 2016

When I meet with fast growing start-ups, they often say: 'we need help in writing position descriptions, working with recruiters, sorting resumes.' This is exactly why recruitment fails. With this approach, it is most likely that these start-ups will end up recruiting the wrong people. They may get the headcount number right, but consequences for the culture and teamwork will eventually impact company performance.

Refocus: From Engagement To Culture Management

Posted by Mathew French on 28 April 2016

Word on the street is that HR needs to adjust its focus from engagement to the more appropriate 'culture management' if business wants to really create workplaces that employees want to be a part of, and will be willing to make a long term commitment to.
