What you need to know about company culture
Everyone loves to talk about culture — but what, exactly, does it mean?
Experts say a great culture will help define your brand and boost your bottom line, and the HR tech market has exploded with tools that promise to do just that. Employers are adapting to an unprecedented era of change, and culture — whatever that entails — is at the center of it.
But when you take a moment to think about it, culture isn't as mysterious as it sounds. It's the way a company works, how it overcomes problems, and the ways in which it challenges and inspires its employees. Culture is genuine; you "know it when you see it." But employers must be wary of assuming anything about "culture fit."
