There is a direct correlation between the business culture of a company and its financial success, and people are the drivers of both. With this in mind, when hiring, it’s wise to focus more on finding someone who fits into the company culture rather than exclusively looking for certain skills. I base hiring decisions 60 percent on fit and 40 percent on skills.
This doesn’t mean simply hiring someone you like and hoping they can do the job. The goal should be to analyze the candidate’s personality and introduce the potential employee to the company’s culture, so you both can make the right decision.
