Don’t Tell Employees Why the Company Culture is Great

One of the challenges of the hiring process is determining if a prospective employee is a good fit into their company culture, and then to immerse the employee in that culture when they start. Some organizations are addressing this challenge by starting what’s being called cultural immersion programs. These are programs where the new employee gets a crash course in the cultural values of that company. Some companies have created very innovative culture immersion programs with one notable example being Cirrus Logic.
