Top view of people joining hands together as a symbol of partnershipDid you know employees who are a good culture fit tend to have greater job satisfaction, superior job performance, and are more likely to stay with the company? When 89% of hiring failures are due to poor culture fit, screening for this quality is key to finding the right employees for your organization.

Here are the top 5 culture fit questions to ask during your next candidate interview:

1. What are the three things that are most important to you in a job?

2. Tell me about a time in the last week when you’ve been satisfied, energized, and productive at work. What were you doing?

3. What’s the most interesting thing about you that’s not on your resume?

4. What would make you choose our company over others?

5. What’s the biggest misconception your coworkers have about you and why do they think that?
