Hire for Culture, Train for Skill

by | Oct 17, 2022 | Uncategorized

Culture is the leading component of retaining team members. Individuals want an environment that cultivates positivity, one where they are excited to come to work. But developing a lasting culture is more than slapping a mission statement on the wall or putting it in your email signature.

Team members must be committed to living up to those standards daily, starting with the organization’s leadership. If your leadership team is not following the company values or practicing the things they advertise, it stands to reason that others will not.


Hire for Culture, Train for Skill

One way to welcome new team members is by assigning them a coach or a mentor. This is an individual who lives the culture daily—someone who is not the team member’s direct manager. The coach and the mentor serve as a ‘safe’ space for questions and introductions and ensure a smooth transition into the organization.

Creating a comfortable team environment and culture is key to employee retention. People don’t leave bad jobs; they leave lousy leadership. People will remain loyal if your leadership team follows the culture and practices that the company advertises. Listen to the full interview for more tips on creating a great culture.
