If you are wondering why this blog is ending with recruiting then consider these comments
When you hire on “fit” and behaviour you are less likely to experience challenges with that individual behaving in ways that do not suit the culture
The vast majority of companies who hire on skill fire on culture fit. Statistics are sitting at 80% of unexpected resignations are due to people being hired for skills and then feeling that they don’t fit into the new company or team
The way that we begin something is interpreted to represent the way that we want things to continue in the future.
Existing staff will also draw conclusions from decisions made when hiring new staff.
1. salary of new employee vs existing employees
2. who in the company the new employee knows
3. recent contracts signed or lost by the company
