Last week, we asked eNews readers: How important is “cultural fit” when it comes to hiring someone? Responses were split evenly between it being a major factor and it not being a factor at all.


“It is not only irrelevant, but [a] bad business policy. A person should be hired for their qualifications for what they can do to make a profit for your business!”

“Seldom [do] we see people who are totally unbiased. But we should not have too many to be guided by what they perceive about others.”

“If a candidate cannot work with the team, their skill set could be wasted; would be a disservice to them and the company.”
