The Problem of Team Fit

Bad hires cost money, and 9 out of 10 times it's down to team/culture fit
  • Bad hires affect every company, even the most successful
  • The Economist—Unsuccessful hiring is...
    “the single biggest problem in business today”
  • 80 percent of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions Harvard Business Review
  • 46% of new hires fail in the first 18 months but only 11% due to a lack of skills LeadershipIQ
  • Tony Hseih, Zappos
    ”The biggest category of mistakes is definitely in the hiring process… Over the course of Zappos' history it's probably cost us well over $100 million”
Bad hires are costly…
  • The average cost of a bad hiring decision can equal 30% of the individual's first-year potential earnings U.S Dept. of Labor

Why We're Different

We've approached the problem of team fit in a completely new way

We started at the beginning: What is fit?

For some it's 'values', for others it's personality or even the shoes someone wears! To solve the 'fit' problem, we needed a definition that everyone could understand, and managers could actually use to make decisions.

Fit is... “An environment in which someone can thrive”

Of course, that's a great starting point, but we needed something more specific than that. So we created five categories of a Thrive Environment:

  • How things get done
  • How decisions are made
  • How people interact
  • How performance is measured
  • How people grow their careers

By measuring and comparing each person in this way, ThriveMap® provides a consistent, objective, and usable tool to make better hiring decisions and increased performance.
