Ah, the “right fit.” It’s the Holy Grail of hiring managers and human resource professionals — the candidate who not only has the skills and background needed to get the job done, but who also has the personality that meshes well with a department’s or company’s other workers.
In order to find this “perfect” individual, companies sometimes turn to what is known as “values-based recruiting.”
Values-based recruiting takes a look at candidates beyond their specific skills, education and background. This type of recruiting takes into account a candidate’s values and behaviors. It’s created by putting together a model that outlines those behaviors associated with success in a particular corporate culture and then reviewing candidates to see how they match those behaviors.
Such a process usually results in hiring more people who think about business in the same way the employer does.
Getting workers who are “on the same page” as an employer can be a good thing. But what about when a company wants some new blood, new energy, new ways of thinking and doing things? In this case, it may be a good idea to bring on board individuals who are not perfect values-based matches. Instead, companies can put together a new list of desired competencies and new goals and values and then recruit and select for these new paradigms.
