PrincePerelson Urges Greater Focus on Unique Work Culture for Diversity Month
Utah placement agency participates in annual diversity awareness campaign by urging employers to consider job applicants’ work culture for more successful hires
Salt Lake City, UT (PRUnderground) April 7th, 2020
In honor of Celebrate Diversity Month, PrincePerelson & Associates, a leading Utah recruiting firm, is urging employers to consider work culture as a key factor in the hiring process.
For over 25 years, PrincePerelson has been serving as a strategic partner to Utah companies, helping them with seasonal and temporary staffing as well as temp-to-hire and direct hire. Their extensive networks in a wide variety of industries allow them to connect companies with candidates that they might not be able to find through traditional resources.
According to Jill Perelson, the company’s CEO and Founder, there is a greater need to focus on work style in the hiring process in order to complement a company’s progress and goals.
“Every person is unique, and every company is unique,” said Perelson. “A mistake that hiring managers make is to underestimate the importance of a job applicant’s work style and personality and how it might mesh with the organization.”
Perelson urges all organizations to put a greater focus on their company’s distinct culture as they hire new employees.
“The advice to ‘know thyself’ applies well here,” said Perelson. “Companies and departments need to do some soul searching and respect their own uniqueness.”
Perelson suggested asking questions such as these: Does my company need someone who is more collaborative or autonomous? Or, which does my team prize more — flexibility and spontaneity, or a high degree of structure?”
“If companies can pin down questions like these first rather than just going with someone who has the right skill set, they are going to be happier in the long run, and so is the employee,” said Perelson.
Perelson said she sees the need for this mindset daily in her placement agency.
“Our clients can give us a job description, but that’s only a part of their story,” said Perelson. “We work to develop a deep understanding of each of our clients’ work environments so we know who might fit well within it. That’s one of our best secrets for making successful hiring decisions.”
PrincePerelson appeared on Staffing Industry Analyst’s list of Largest Diversity Staffing Firms in the United States. As a women-owned talent solutions agency, the company prides itself on diversity of gender as well as different cultures and work styles.
“Diversity promotes innovation and innovation promotes a winning team environment,” said Perelson.
