Do you find yourself creating a target list of potential companies to work for? Maybe you know you need a different work environment. Perhaps you have gone through an interview; but wonder if the organization is the right fit for you? Culture plays a big role in job satisfaction.
As Sheila Margolis, organizational culture and employee engagement expert, reveals this article (www.td.org/Publications/…Using-Culture-Fit-to-Find-the-Right-Workplace),
“Companies know the importance of evaluating not just the capabilities, competencies, and character of the individual, but also the person’s fit with the organization’s culture.”
- She recommends making a culture fit assessment by taking these three steps:
- First, clarify your personal Ps—your purpose and principles.
- Understand the core culture of each prospective workplace: its purpose, philosophy, and priorities.
- Then, decide whether the workplace is the right place for you.
