You Must Define the Culture You Want to Attract the Talent You Want
Every organization has a culture – whether intentionally designed or not. To win the war for talent, we believe that you must explicitly define the culture you want to attract talent that will thrive.
We define culture as how things actually get accomplished in an organization on a day-to-day basis. Culture is how people think, behave, and work. Culture includes the spoken or unspoken values and assumptions that drive such key employee practices as hiring, firing, and promoting.
The Link Between Culture and People and Performance
“How things get done” matters a lot to people and to the business. From a people perspective, your workplace culture matters in terms of being able to attract, develop, engage, and retain top talent that fits and works well together. From a business perspective:
What Is Your Employee Brand?
Your culture and your talent are so inextricably entwined that it’s a little bit like the question of which came first, the chicken or the egg. But the better you define the culture you want to attract talent, the better you will be able to create and live an employee value proposition that gets results. Here are some examples of corporations that have established a culture and employee brand that is immediately recognizable both to current and prospective employees:
The Bottom Line
When you can define and live your unique corporate culture in a way that sets you apart from other companies, you have gone a long way toward winning the war for talent. It enables you to better and more efficiently attract employees who will be highly engaged and who will stick around for the long-term. The better you can explicitly model and communicate your distinctive attributes, the better able potential hires (and potential customers) will be to make wise choices.
