Hiring For Cultural Fit


What does ‘hiring for cultural fit’ even mean?

Hiring for cultural fit? It’s a ton of bullshit.

  • It’s what people say when they don’t want to hire minorities, women, or the disabled.
  • It’s what HR folks say who think they understand culture.
  • It’s what people say when they can’t say I DON’T LIKE YOU.

What do you know about culture?


Hire for competencies. For abilities. For something rooted in reality.
