Finding your dream job is no easy task. Many factors come into play, and one of the most important is the work environment. All organizations have a corporate culture – a unique blend of workplace values that are reflected in the firm's policies and actions. Professionals, too, typically have a set of qualities they seek within a company. Our Workplace Culture Calculator is designed to help you evaluate how well your values align with those held by a current or potential employer.
The following interactive exercise allows you to assess your "match" with an organization in three easy steps. First, you'll rank nine aspects of a company's culture in the order of importance to you. Next, you'll rank your perception of these characteristics within your place of employment or a firm you're interviewing with. (Note: Because it can be challenging to assess these traits in a company you haven't worked for, we've provided a list of questions you can ask during a job interview to gain a better sense of the firm's values in these specific areas.) Finally, our Workplace Culture Calculator will deliver your score and tell you what it means.
Let's get started!
Step 1 - Assessing Your Preferences
Below are nine key aspects of a company's culture. Read through them and think about which of them are most important to you. Next, rank them 1-9 by filling in a number within the box by each one, with '1' indicating the most important aspect, and '9' least important.
