What Matters More Than Competency #2500
July 02, 2023

In episode #2500, we investigate what matters more than competency when it comes to hiring. We explore why cultural fit takes precedence over competence and how it can make or break a team’s success. Through a compelling recruitment story, we illustrate the significance of finding candidates who align with your company’s culture. We also divulge our own companies’ core values and explain why we find open-mindedness, improvement, and obsession to be desirable traits in potential candidates. Join us as we debate the question of competency versus cultural fit from both angles.
