Sourcing the right employees is key to the growth of any business and is an area which can offer you a competitive edge. We appreciate that each organisation is unique, so we tailor our services according to the needs of our clients. Through customising our approach and services based on specifications provided to us, our solutions are always specific to both the skills and the culture required.

Cultural Fit

Whilst the skills to carry out specific roles are pre-requisites, the cultural fit is equally important in sourcing candidates.

The result of poor cultural fit due to turnover of staff can cost an organisation between 50-60% of the person’s annual salary. But before the hiring team starts measuring candidates’ culture fit, they need to be able to define and articulate the organisation’s culture – its values, goals, and practices — and then weave this understanding into the hiring process. Cultural fit is the likelihood that someone will reflect and/or be able to adapt to the core beliefs, attitudes, and behaviours that make up your organisation

Riverside use this model consistently in helping source candidates and we can adopt behavioural competencies during the interview process to help in the process.
