At Lynkz People, we thrive on connecting the right individuals with the right businesses. Our top priority is to ensure that we identify candidates who align with the culture of your company seamlessly. We understand that every organisation has its unique culture, values, and requirements, and we want to ensure that our candidate’s skills and interests align with your company’s values. Not only does a good culture lead to higher job satisfaction and retention rates, but it also helps maintain a positive work environment that fosters productivity and success.

To ensure that we put forward only the most suitable candidates, we use a combination of processes, tools and techniques to source, screen and assess who will be right for your business. Here are some of the ways we do it:  


1. Defining your Company’s Culture: 

Before we start looking for potential candidates, it's important that we know all we can about your company’s culture. This includes your values, beliefs, and behaviours that make up the core of your organisation. Once we have a clear understanding of your company culture, we can begin to evaluate potential candidates based on their alignment with your values. 

2. Sourcing the Talent: 

After we’ve learnt a bit about you and your business, we can begin to source a list of candidates! For this, we use a variety of channels to find the ideal candidates, including online job boards, social media platforms, employee referrals, and our extensive network of contacts in the IT industry. By casting a wide net, we ensure that we have access to a diverse pool of talent.

3. Connecting with the Right People: 

Once we have our pool of candidates, we use a thorough screening process to assess their qualifications, skills, and experience. Only contacting the most qualified to continue the screening process.


4. Looking Past the Resume: 

During the screening process, we also conduct behavioural interviews to evaluate each candidate’s personality, values, and work ethic. By doing so, we ensure that we only present you with equally qualified and suitable candidates that match your company’s values.


5. Presenting only the Best Fits: 

After shortlisting all our applicants, we can now present you with our finalists. This enables us to work with you to assess and then make the final call on your new team member. During this time, we will present you with all our findings on the candidate’s skills, experience, and personality. Allowing you the most information before making the hire.

As we proceed through each of these steps, we collaborate closely with you and your business to fully understand your hiring requirements and preferences. The significance of cultural fit cannot be overstated, as unsuitable individuals can significantly diminish a business's productivity and morale. So when looking for your next employee, give your company the best chance of success by hiring for cultural fit.
