    Bless you, Ron! I’ve been beating this drum for a good while, and I don’t think anybody gets it. You do, and articulate it beautifully. Thanks.

    I am currently searching for work and fully agree with this article, of the available options my decision on who I work for is very much based around how the business projects itself to me as the candidate as much as I need to know I fit or want to fit their culture

    We are all in the middle of these questions, just the scale and acuteness varies. Nicely written and the main point stands out clearly. Thank You for the article!

    Interesting note that with the Gen Y hire, there was no mention of salary in her decision to rule out working for one organization over another. Culture is it for professionals and will only become more important as Gen Y fills employee ranks. By providing a fun and holistic culture to recruits, an organization becomes incredibly competitive…even without salary in the mix.- Randy Hain, Managing Partner, Bell Oaks Executive Search

    It’s one thing to put on a good show upfront during the recruiting process. It’s entirely
    another to actually change a negative culture and maintain it at a desired level.

    Personality assessment not only at the executive level but through all levels would be a step toward understanding just the kind of culture that exists within an organization. Leaders should open themselves up to face what could be an uncomfortable truth.
