Cultural Alignment

Broader Organizational Culture Considerations.

Over 90% of failed appointments result from a mismatch to organizational culture than from any other singular cause
— Mercer

New appointments are usually hired for the skills and experience required to meet the role’s objectives and mandate, but often lack awareness of what is expected of them in the role; specifically, how their style of relating fits with a team’s existing culture and in the context of the broader organizational culture.

Jacobs|Scott's cultural alignment process provides insight into how well a candidate is equipped to perform optimally within a specific culture, streamlines the selection process, and minimizes the potential for future conflict.


Our proven process of aligning the culture between the newly-appointed candidate and the broader organizational environment provides clarity to the strategic fit of the role, and ensures that placements are sustained for the longer term.
