In September I had the chance to attend Sourcing Summit. A year earlier I could only follow it on Twitter, and there I was presenting some of my work in front of all the people I admire in sourcing. If that doesn’t convince you anything is possible, I don’t know what will 😉
I spoke about sourcing for culture fit. You can see the presentation below.
I chose the subject because of my background in culture studies and lingiustics. I used a theoretical approach, focusing on dimensions of culture as described by Fons Trompenaars. My hypothesis was that candidate profiles could reveal cultural preferences through the use of specific language.
