The best questions to ask in a job interview to assess the workplace culture

The best questions to ask in a job interview to assess the workplace culture

When it comes to job satisfaction, there’s a special ingredient that holds the key to happiness and success in a role: it’s called “cultural fit.”

The Harvard Business Review describes cultural fit as the likelihood that someone will reflect and/or be able to adapt to the core beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that make up an organization.

At Hudson, we know from experience how important cultural fit is to an employee’s performance, happiness and longevity in a role – because individuals will only thrive in an environment where they feel comfortable and within an organization whose values align with their own.

 
 
 

3 business benefits of establishing an organizational purpose

3 business benefits of establishing an organizational purpose

Purpose has become a popular discussion point in HR circles as of late, and for good reason – a well-defined and compelling purpose can bring about long-lasting, positive change to your organization and the people who engage with it.

In its simplest form, purpose is about identifying the core reason why your organization exists – why you do what you do - then finding an effective way of articulating and demonstrating that message to the world.

But unlike social responsibility, which in most cases is about checking a few boxes and then continuing with business as usual, an organization’s purpose is multifaceted. It incorporates and builds from all aspects of your organization, from corporate elements such as strategy and structure, through to personal factors such as individual fulfillment and employee development.

What's the one thing the HR Director of the future will need?

What's the one thing the HR Director of the future will need?

At Hudson, we talk a lot about transformation.

We talk about organizational structures being dismantled. We talk about conventional, silo-based teams and systems becoming obsolete. We even talk about traditional roles in a company being thrown out the window.

Naturally, in all this talk of tearing up the rulebook in the new world of work, people wonder what this will mean for their role.
