Should You Hire For Cultural Fit Or Adaptability?

Research done by Amir Goldberg and Sameer B. Srivastava indicates that both cultural fit and enculturability do matter for individual career success (e.g., getting promoted or not getting fired.) But they find that employees with low initial cultural fit and high enculturability do better than employees with high initial cultural fit and low enculturability. Goldberg’s and Srivastava’s work suggests that firms should put place less emphasis on screening on cultural fit and points out the value of screening on enculturability.
