Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Spark Hire (http://www.sparkhire.com), the leading online video interviewing platform, recently launched a whitepaper discussing the ways staffing professionals can assess candidates for cultural fit within their client’s company. The free to download whitepaper entitled, “6 Company Culture Hiring Tips for Staffing Firms”, provides tips for identifying and understanding a client’s company culture and how to utilize readily available technology to determine a candidate’s cultural attributes.
Recent studies have determined that 46% of new hires fail within 18 months. In 89% of these cases, the reason was due to the employee’s poor company culture fit. Thus, staffing professionals must first identify and understand their client’s company culture in order to find the perfect candidates for them. The whitepaper touches on the common types of culture for a company, such as customer-facing and collaborative, and explains what types of candidates would best fit into each of them.
Among several other tips, the whitepaper advises staffing pros to take advantage of technology such as social media and video interviewing for recruiting candidates. Candidates’ social media profiles can provide recruiters with insight into their personality, interests, and potential company culture fit. Recruiters can also use social media to communicate and engage with someone before a formal interview. One-way video interviews, where candidates answer questions in short videos, can be especially useful for recruiters. Watching a candidates’ video can provide a more personal look so as to determine their company culture fit. If a candidate doesn’t immediately come off as someone who can fit into a client’s workplace, staffing pros can simply move on to the next person’s video.
“More companies are realizing the long-term benefits of hiring candidates who fit well into their company culture,” says Spark Hire CEO, Josh Tolan. “It’s especially crucial, then, that staffing professionals acknowledge this and utilize the tips from this whitepaper to find their clients great employees that will stick around and help their organization experience continued success and growth.”
