In the modern working world, it is no longer just about pay, location, one’s own career and similar traditional benchmarks. Factors such as a work-life balance and good dealings with each other are increasingly becoming the hard currency on the labor market.
The culture check on XING is based on a data and culture model that was developed under the direction of business psychologist Prof. Dr. Meynhardt from the HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management for the New Work SE subsidiary kununu. It helps users to reflect comprehensively on what is particularly important to them at work. After answering the questionnaire, XING members find out what they should pay particular attention to when choosing their employer in the future. On the other hand, potential employers who meet these criteria are displayed to users. The recommendation function is currently in beta and will be successively expanded in the coming weeks.
Individual cultural compass for more orientation in working life
The questions from the culture check questionnaire can be answered quickly and easily. Users select 20 aspects and values in each of the four categories “Leadership”, “Interaction with one another”, “Strategic attitude” and “Work-life balance” that they particularly want from an employer or that they completely reject. Finally, you give the five top preferences that are particularly important to you personally in your job.
As a result, XING users receive an individual culture compass that shows them what they should pay particular attention to when choosing an employer in the future. For this purpose, the preferences are visualized across the board and in the four categories, so that you can see at a glance whether traditional or modern values predominate in these categories.
Based on the information from the culture check, XING members also receive individual suggestions for employers that match their personal preferences. The culture check compares all entries with the corporate culture data from thousands of employers and shows which employers offer what is particularly important to you. The data analyzed for this purpose are authentic ratings by employees of the companies that were submitted on the employer rating platform kununu.
Authentic evaluations of the corporate culture of potential employers
The culture compass in the XING job market, which is already integrated in more than 300,000 job advertisements on XING and provides information about the corporate culture of the respective employer, also offers further orientation. Job seekers receive information that is not available in any other job advertisement and is also not listed on the company’s job portals. According to the culture compass, the greater the match between the individual cultural desires and the culture of the company, the greater the likelihood that the job seeker and the company will fit together in the long term.
