On July 8th we discussed how to create a company culture that rocks. Our guest was my friend Jim Knight, a leading training and development expert who worked with Hard Rock International for 20 years where he led the renowned School Of Hard Rocks.
Jim offered some rocking, high energy dialogue around the art of candidate engagement and why its vital to develop a cohesive company culture. A powerful, productive and fun company culture is the sum total of its employees. As Jim put it, employees collectively make up the heart and soul of the organization.
This week’s show was a real blast and, for me, really brought home the importance of the cultural fit in the hiring stage and beyond. The Twitters rocked on with us in big numbers this week – trending, for example, in L.A. – a pretty rock n’ roll city!
Great “bands” and brands focus on culture first and foremost so it will drive engagement, business outcomes and ultimately success. So remember #TChat fans, while skills are important, there must also be a rocking fit between the culture of the employer, and employee, ‘brands’.
A rockin' corporate culture means people are walking into the company smiling each day. #Tchat
