How We Hire at NextGen

We look at the Social Fit

Finding employees with the right skill set and expertise is incredibly important to the success of your business. It’s equally important to find employees that mesh with your company’s culture. All new hires should buy into the values, beliefs and behaviors that make up your culture. At NextGen, part of our culture is creating an atmosphere where everyone gets along and has fun. We call this a good social fit.

When we started NextGen, we set out to do something different in the telecom recruiting industry by reducing the turnover typical of other firms. We knew that strong social interactions and not just incentives created a fun place to work where people wanted to stay.

That’s why we interview for the social side. Getting a look at an applicant’s behaviour in a social setting lets us know how they’ll fit with the rest of the team. At the end of the day, social fit is one of our values, and it’s important to hire for your values, not just on skill-set or abilities.
