When we hire someone, everyone on our team has to agree that it’s someone they want to work with, but they also have to be someone they would be comfortable working under one day. – Chris Martinez
As more people enter the remote workforce, the people we’re going to hire on our teams are going to be younger. Because they come from a different generation, determining whether they are a personality and cultural fit requires us to adapt how we interview them and what we need to be looking for.
When our teams are completely virtual, what works in-person doesn’t always translate to a remote environment. What are the things we need to put an emphasis on in our leadership and team culture? How can we gain insight on how our younger team members think and what they value?
