Speaker pitch
You’ve probably heard of the culture-fit interview and maybe participated in one. Organizations and teams rightly want to know not only does this person have the skills and aptitude for the job, but also “will this person work in our particular environment?” Prospective employees also want to know that. But by emphasizing culture fit — the assimilable qualities of the person — we may lose sight of an important benefit of bringing new people into our organizations: the person’s additive qualities — new ways of thinking and working, external experiences — that bring energy, creativity and improvement that we can’t simply bootstrap ourselves into from within. This session explores how to emphasize culture add to balance the goals of helping new people to fit into the organization and and helping the organization to create engaging space for new people.

Le mot de l’organisation
Matt a beau revenir chaque année, il nous propose toujours des nouveaux sujets et sur celui là il était quasi sûr d’être pris car nous lui avons dit que ça ferait un super sujet de conférence quand il a sorti son article sur le sujet. Ce qui est super intéressant avec ce sujet, c’est de voir comment mettre les nouveaux arrivants dans les meilleures conditions pour qu’ils apportent tout ce qu’ils ont à apporter et ne pas créer de plafond artificiel.
