The Other Side of the Table
Understanding the Hiring Process from the Candidate's View

In any organization, the recruitment mechanism is an intricate dance. Hiring managers approach this process armed with a checklist of skills, experiences, and cultural fit parameters. For them, it's about ensuring that the chosen candidate possesses the required expertise and aligns seamlessly with the company's ethos and future goals. By orchestrating interviews, screening resumes, and liaising with stakeholders, hiring managers aim to sculpt their company's future workforce. While hiring managers see a systematic process, candidates often see a maze. For them, every step, every email, every interaction can be both an opportunity and a challenge. By shifting our perspective to align with theirs, we can bridge the gap between organizational needs and candidate expectations, resulting in a smoother, more efficient hiring experience for all parties involved.

How to Promote Company Culture
Part-Time and Temporary Workers Edition

Some may feel that companies should concentrate on their regular, full-time workforce and their cultural needs and be less concerned about the alignment of their part-time, seasonal, or temporary workforce. After all, those groups are not part of the main workforce and have less impact on the health of a company's culture…right? Well, no. You must engage these workers in a meaningful way on cultural issues, just as you do full-time teammates. Everyone in the company should be on the same page regarding company culture.
