Not bad at all. While skillsets and experience are important when hiring new members for your organization, you better make sure that your new hires are organizational fit as well. A culture mismatch can easily cause employees to quit early.
Plus, Millennials and Gen Z (who make up nearly half of the full-time workforce in the US/UK and Europe) want a good culture fit. They want to work for companies that share their values and want to feel like their work has a purpose and makes a difference.
But winning the war on talent does not stop with a big pile of applications. It’s crucial to select the best candidate. Find some powerful ways to do just that in this old blog: How To Recruit Like The World's Most Progressive Organizations: https://corporate-rebels.com/recruitment/

How are work outcomes affected by the treatment of those who do it? I have been exploring this question for ~50 years. In that time, one comment stuck with me more than any other. It was made in 1998 when I interviewed a group of men in Indianapolis who had redesigned most of the US city’s waste collection and disposal operations. “We are no longer expected to park our brains at the door when we come to work.”
