According to TriveMap’s survey conducted in 2018, about 96% of HR leaders think that hiring for cultural fit can be key for the organization. When you hire employees that are in line with the company’s values, they are more likely to stay for the long term; workers are motivated and productive which results in higher job satisfaction. And finally, if your remote workers have the same core values as you have, they tend to form better relationships with each other, and this contributes to the company’s overall success.
