Sourcing First For Culture Makes For A Productive Environment
As one of the keypoints or "Must-Haves" of a search, @PeopleOps we recognize that aligning candidates with companies based on a solid culture fit is important. While working with hiring managers across a variety of industries, we always make the extra effort to source candidates that directly relate to the hiring company's culture. It's part of our process. We really get to know our customers companies and apply that knowledge of their culture to our sourcing. It's no different for our own internal needs.
Here at PeopleOps, we value the hard work and production that our interns show us everyday. In hopes of returning the favor, and in light of great timing, we took an office Friday field trip to see “The Internship” recently. As an office, we grabbed some lunch together, and then saw the film.
We recognize the importance of company DNA and look for certain “culture fits” when go through our hiring process. We want to work with people who we truly enjoy being around while also "getting it", because lets face it, we spend more time in the office than we do at home. Our senior staff is comprised of talented individuals who get along like friends, while also being great coworkers, and we hope to immerse our interns into that mindset as well. At the end of their internship, they may be offered a position to work with the big boys, so to speak, so instilling our company DNA soon is the best way to go, and what better way than to mock the idea of a coffee getting, copy making, down right horrible, internship?
