rejection of candidates over cultural fit

Posted on Monday, July 1st, 2013 by

Over half of organisations (59%) have rejected a potential candidate based on cultural fit, research from assessment and development consultancy Cubiks has found. According to the research, 82% of respondents said measuring the cultural fit of candidates is an essential part of the recruitment process. However, only around a third (32%) of respondents said their organisation actively measures it. And just over half (54%) of respondents say their organisation has a clear definition of their culture.
