Cultural fit is best understood when you consider it within the context of your organization’s culture and how your organization’s culture was formed. A potential employee may express and exhibit the characteristics, language, and values that exist within the current organizational culture – or not.

You want to hire only candidates whose belief and behavior systems appear congruent with your organizational culture.
