To Hire or Not To Hire? This Austrian Startup Connects Companies With The Right-Fit Talents

It goes without saying that there is a direct correlation between sustained growth  of your business and performance of your team. Your first hires lay the foundation for the company’s culture. Your employees’ values, their behavior, vision and ability to perform in the team – all these things have a direct impact on the development of your business and company’s brand. Therefore, as a business owner you should pay a very close attention to the hiring process.


Before you make decision to hire a candidate, you have to make sure that his/her goals and values are aligned with goals and values of your company. Potential employees should be excellent team players – they may have a diverse background and set of skills, but they should be motivated to work together in order to reach a common goal. Employees should strive to nurture a positive atmosphere within the company, encourage creative flow and collaborative spirit. They should be passionate about their work.


Hiring “right cultural fit” is usually a challenging task. Most often employers encounter the following problem – skills and education of the candidate meet company’s requirements, but character and particular qualities don’t define this person as a perfect match.


It’s quite risky to hire an employee who doesn’t fit in company’s culture. Wrong hire may undermine your business. It may also affect relationship between other employees, tarnish reputation of your business in the eyes of customers and business partners.
