Your company culture defines your business. Essentially the personality of your organization, culture guides your mission, values, goals, work environment, and so much more.
Considering its importance, evaluating your culture on a regular basis is a must. This is especially crucial when hiring for two key reasons — it will help you choose the best person for the job while making sure the culture you’re marketing to candidates is the one delivered.
Of course, assessing your culture isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Since you’re deeply immersed in it, taking on a staffing partner can be the best way to hire right. They’ll immerse themselves in your culture, so they can offer the best possible guidance.
4 Ways a Staffing Agency Can Help You Hire For Culture
Create Job Descriptions That Reflect Your Culture
More than just a summary of what the position involves, your job descriptions need to highlight what it’s like to work at your company. A recruiter will help you craft descriptions that accurately reflect the responsibilities associated with the job, while marketing your outstanding culture.
Source Active and Passive Talent
The right person for the job might be actively seeking new opportunities — or not. Your recruiter will source candidates using a variety of tools and resources, covering both active and passive talent. A larger candidate pool will give you more qualified applicants to choose from.
Screen Candidates for Cultural Fit
After narrowing down your candidate pool to include only top contenders, your recruiter will conduct a thorough screening process — i.e., interviewing, testing, verifying references, and conducting background checks and drug screens. This will help them learn as much as possible about candidates, so they’re able to gauge their fit for both the position and your culture.
Guide You Through the Interview Process
When their legwork is complete, your recruiter will present you with their top choices. From there, they’ll help you through the final interview process. Your intimate knowledge of your company, combined with your recruiter’s hiring expertise will ensure you’ll choose the very best person for the job every time.
