everything else falls into place.
-Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com

Now that is an interesting position, isn’t it?  The article is from Human Resource Executive online and features a brief look at Mr. Hsieh’s “unorthodox” HR strategy.

“We do two [job] interviews — the first for skills and the second for cultural fit,” he said, adding that the company has opted to not hire many talented candidates and has fired employees because they didn’t fit the culture or weren’t passionate enough about customer service.

Fifty percent of the company’s performance review focuses on culture fit, he said.

To ensure employees are committed to Zappos’ core values, it offers new hires $2,000 to leave the company.

Now that is commitment to the culture.
