Plenty of human resources administration professionals talk about company culture in blog posts and interviews. It is an intangible but very important aspect of any business, and it encompasses much of the day-to-day life of an employee. From how people dress to how they most often communicate, a company's culture describes and dictates most facets of a worker's experience.

The 2012 Deloitte Culture in the Workplace study found that 88 percent of employees thought a distinct workplace culture was essential for business success. There was also a correlation between employees who felt appreciated and were happy in their jobs and employees who reported that their company had a clearly defined culture. There are morale assets to having a definite company culture.

Employers and job candidates both seek to determine during the interview process whether the company's culture is a good fit. An explicit statement of company culture makes it easier to determine this, leading to better hires, whether they are permanent or temporary workers. When considering what will allow an employee to thrive at a business, recruiters should consider the business' culture and how the candidate would react to it.
