Establishing a company’s culture starts from the top. As the company begins to expand, the culture also begins to solidify. Making “culture fit” part of the recruiting and hiring requirements is crucial.

Bringing people to your team who share the same values and goals as the company is important. You won’t always be able to know for sure these details during the hiring process, but you will find out as they start working with you. If a team member does not fit the culture, then it would be appropriate to let them go.

Also, culture within a company is ever-changing. As technology advances, so does society. This means that if your goals change due to these external factors, so can the company’s culture.

Last point, the size of a company does not affect the company’s culture. Culture stems from leadership. If leadership cares, they will give back to their employees. If leadership takes, then the company’s culture is negatively affected.
