Job Shop: The meaning of 'corporate culture'

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Hiring managers always talk about someone fitting in to the "corporate culture," but the meaning is very fuzzy. Candidates really have little idea what it means; therefore, they have no idea how to see if they will fit in.

Beth Grossman from Angott Search Group offers up what corporate culture really means:

  • THE COMPANY'S MISSION STATEMENT (their key values, what's most important to them)
  • TEAM FOCUS (do they work a great deal in teams or do they value individual performance more)
  • ADAPTABILITIES (how they expect their employees to adapt to different situations and to change within the company)
  • SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES (is the company involved in charitable work and do they want employees who are also)
  • EMPOWERMENT (do they want employees who can make their own decisions or do they want employees who will follow commands of others)

These are just a few of the factors that are included in corporate culture, but it's critical for candidates interviewing for jobs to know that it's important.
