Hiring to fit in or to diverge?
Interesting comments on the FC Blog around a comment by Jeff Bezos. What do you think? Do organizations over-engineer the "cultural fit" component of hiring?
When we talk about encourging diversity in organizations because (1) our customers are diverse and (2) diversity gives rise to better ideas, shouldn't this notion of "cultural fit" also be challenged?
Or, does the Japanese saying "The nail that stands out, gets hammered in" hold true for all organizations?
