“Organizational culture” may be an overused phrase, but culture — and the employer-employee connection culture generates — has become part of recruiting, retention, and the assembling of the right benefits package to engender long-term loyalty.
How important are culture and connection within an organization? They definitely can make a major difference in candidate interest and employee satisfaction. Just consider the following;
- Mentioning culture in job postings increases engagement with the listing (67%).
- One-quarter of employees say they’ll leave an employer if they’re not happy with an organization’s culture.
- Nearly 15% of job seekers will decline a job offer because they don’t feel comfortable organization’s culture.
