A Culture Fit in a COVID World

A Culture Fit in a COVID World

January 18th, 2021

More and more people are prioritizing a company’s culture over anything else when selecting or choosing to stay at an employer. Culture is even higher on the list than salary. We are seeing this to be true even more so now in the world of Covid-19.

Job seekers and employees have more demands and pressures than they did a year ago. Perhaps their children are learning virtually from home. Perhaps they have a high risk loved one. Perhaps they need the flexibility to handle family schedules.

The reality is that it’s hard to ask all employees to commit 100% of their time between 8 am – 5 pm to work. At least for right now.

What can you do to promote this type of culture? Here are some suggestions:

  1. If you’re able to, create a work environment that allows team members to have flexibility in their schedule and you will attract top talent that will be more loyal to the company.
  2.  Explain during the interview process that you understand this need and accept that some team members need flexibility.
  3. Reinforce that teamwork, culture, and trust are paramount to the success of the candidate as well as the company.

Finding candidates that show commitment and integrity can be difficult. EverStaff can help you find the best candidates out there. We have connections and networks that help us find candidates that may not be actively looking and help you attract those candidates to your company.
