Stand Out or Fit In?

Many of today’s recruiters and hiring managers focus a great deal on a job candidate’s “culture fit” — but Wharton’s Adam Grant warns that it can be a recipe for groupthink. Grant says we should focus less on whether a candidate will “fit in” and more on the ways they might “stand out.” “Instead of culture fit, what you want is cultural contribution,” he says. “Don't ask whether someone matches your culture. Ask what's missing from your culture and bring in people who can enrich it. That doesn't require you to be best friends.”
