A Business is Called Company Because…

A business is called company because of its people’s will to produce value.

The history of “to produce” is Latin, deriving from produco: to lead forth, or bring forward. The history of “company” is Old French, meaning compaignie, or companionship. And the history of “business” is Old English, combining busy and -ness. It is in the etymology from culture to culture to culture, the real business value of a company depends on its people.

In America’s modern corporate structure, those in human resources and recruitment, traditionally, evaluate the abilities and personalities of new people interested in the company, most of which, are interested in work that is not human resources or recruiting. Human resource professionals and recruiters need the help of different departments to hire the best abilities and personality matches. Technology that can increase collaboration between HR/recruiting and the expanding department, will create more productive hiring.

Already, most companies understand that workers of relevant departments should be involved when hiring. 70% of people who have hired say their company includes at least three current workers in each hiring decision. However, only 24% of those “know where things stand” with a current candidate.

This is why HireLoop is the technology to revolutionize how America hires. HireLoop is the real-time pulse on your company’s potentially new people.

The Essential “Culture Fit” Interview Questions

After four years of startup life, I’ve come to hate the question, “is this candidate a culture fit?”. I hate it almost as much as I am repulsed by the over-used word “hacking.” I hear it every day and it makes me cringe!

Now don’t get me wrong: culture is important. A company’s culture is its personality. It is the environment in which the team operates, which is affected by its mission, goals, and leadership.

In fact, it’s what sets startups apart from the rest of the business world. It’s certainly not the size or age of the company that determines whether it is a startup or not, as there are tiny bureaucratic companies and giant public companies with startup cultures.

So how do companies make sure their culture succeeds when they add a new hire to the team? read more…
