Russ Bergeman's curator insight, April 18, 2013 9:21 PM

The benefits are exponentially greater when anyone, but especially an employee, finds meaning in what they are doing. I believe people are "hard wired" to seek meaning in the actions they take. When the actions that must be taken at work don't align with personal values, where many find meaning, people become less satisfied. It may take months, years, or even decades to show up... but eventually it does show up in reduced performance and negative morale.

 

I advocate using tools specifically designed to determine an employees organizational fit. There are also tools that can assist in determining an employee's managerial capacity within specific jobs. My company, The Employers Edge, has implemented these assessments in hundreds of companies with thousands of employees and leaders.

 

What are you using in your organization to ensure you are hiring, retaining, and promoting the right people?

Great points. Thanks for sharing. Particularly in determining a culture fit, not jsut a skills match, it's important the candidate also ask questions. Interviews are not one directional...and if they are...would you really want to work for the organization?
