What are Culture-Fit Questions?

Culture-fit questions are those asked during an interview to gauge whether a candidate will successfully fit into an organisation’s culture. These questions tend to be open ended and can touch on the candidate’s view of management best practice, the environment in which they are able to be their most productive and the their relationshipswith their peers. There is greater emphasis to focus on culture fit rather than the candidate’s ability to carry out the role. The belief is that a person can be trained but their ability to work well within a team can lead to pore job satisfaction, low productivity and a potentially hazardous environment.
