Why a Bad Culture Fit Can Cost A Lot in IT

Good IT recruiters focus on making sure IT consultants are a great fit for IT jobs in terms of the skills on their resumes and in terms of personality.  This isn’t just for the comfort of the IT managers these IT staffing companies work for, it’s for the productivity of the company itself!  Recent studies show that the companies that really invest in their IT professionals and make them feel appreciated see that investment pay back in spades.

Why is this true?  To some extent, the answer is pretty intuitive.  IT contractors who feel appreciated by their companies also feel a sense of loyalty to them and have an interest in seeing them succeed.  This is partially selfish, as somebody who likes their job, managers, coworkers, etc will want to stay in the same spot.  Making sure the company does well makes this possible.  It’s also easier to be productive when you’re relaxed, calm, and happy.  Whatever the main reason, it’s clear that a good culture fit is really beneficial financially.
