Culture & Engagement

Daniel Williams MBA, MSEM
Company culture plays a key role in deciding whether a new opportunity is the right fit for job seekers. In fact, according to a report published on LinkedIn by GMR Group, company culture is one of the three primary reasons a job doesn’t work out. (The other two are the boss and the job was misrepresented or changes once you’re in it.)

In this podcast episode, former human resources manager at MGMA, Jenny Morales, SHRM-SCP, GBA, explains the critical role company culture plays in finding the right job. “One of my first suggestions to anyone interviewing for a job is to ask about the culture,” Morales says. 

In the interview process, Morales says job seekers should have a list of culture questions including:
  • Tell me about the culture of your company?
  • What is it like to work here and tell me what you like best and least about working for the company?
  • How has the culture changed in the last five years?
  • What is the current executive team doing to build a great company culture?
  • What are some of the opportunities the company has created that would allow me to form relationships with colleagues in other departments? 

Also in this podcast, Morales details the importance of flexibility in the workplace. “When researching a company,” she says. “You want to know if the company offers flex time and telecommuting. And, if you have a family, what are the company’s maternity and paternity policies?”

Finally, Morales explains what job seekers can do to research a company including creating Google alerts about the organization and to reach out to people connected to the company on LinkedIn to get a better idea of their policies, purpose and how they treat their employees.
