At what phase in the hiring process do you communicate your company vision and core values?
As an owner, we have to filter out candidates who don’t match our values. So when in the hiring process is that bad-match determination made?
I think it’s smart to post your company’s vision and core values in the job description, for two reasons.
1) If a candidate removes him or herself from the process after reading your Vision and Values, you’ve possibly saved yourself a lot of time in the selection process
2) If a candidate is greatly attracted by your Vision and Values, they’re more likely to choose your company over all their other alternatives they’re considering, and the job they may already be in.
I know some interview questions during the 1st screening interview should ask them probing questions to see if they match the company values and vision.. Like you said, better to know this early in process vs later.
