Organizations create additional value through diverse teams.  The hiring process can be a critical time to identify what a candidate can bring to your team.  Organizations need to transition from a method of finding the right “fit” with its culture to identifying where a candidate can “add” new elements that can improve the culture. Identifying the right questions and tools can aid that process transformation.

Cultural Add Learning Objectives:

1)    Explain the benefits of adding diverse team members to enhance your organization’s culture
2)    Recognize the importance of the organization’s values in the hiring process
3)    Describe the difference between “Culture Fit” and “Culture Add”

I started my career with Deloitte two years ago as an Audit & Assurance Delivery Assistant in Gilbert, Arizona. Recently, I transitioned roles into the Audit Campus Recruiter, continuing to work with, and recruit for, my same team at the Delivery Center. Prior to working at Deloitte, I graduated from the University of Arizona with my degree in Accounting. In addition to completing my degree, I was also on the Women’s Gymnastics team at the University of Arizona, where I competed both floor and vault for my team. I am extremely passionate about helping others achieve their goals and in finding the right opportunities for students I work with. I look forward to connecting with you all soon!
