#DThink Twitter Chat Recap: Great Culture Begins With Great Recruiting

September 04, 2014 by Bruce Jones, Senior Programming Director, Disney Institute

Every organization has a culture, and it is up to you to determine whether yours is a culture by design…or by default. It’s why we believe that modifying or adjusting key aspects of your selection process will yield people with a far greater propensity to be excellent. Simply put, great culture begins with great recruiting. If you take the time to hire the right people, those that correctly exhibit your organization’s behaviors and values, you will achieve your desired culture.

During our most recent #DThink Twitter Chat (held the first Wednesday of each month), we had excellent dialogue with our Twitter community about this very topic. Featuring questions and answers based on Disney’s Approach to Employee Engagement, our professional development course that shares Disney’s best practices for cultivating a positive workplace culture, the Chat explored how the selection process (hiring and recruiting) forms the foundation for creating organizational culture.

There were many excellent responses throughout the chat. Here is a full recap of the Chat. Or, below we have shared a few of our favorite Tweets:
