I bet if you asked 5 employees at your startup “what’s the culture like here” you’d get 5 different answers. But have you ever asked?
I have, and it can be eye opening 😳
I call these conversations “Culture Interviews” and you should run them at your startup.
In the early days of your startup, your people are your culture.
You’re all building the culture together, so make sure you’re on the same page.
So when I’m learning a new company’s culture, or improving the culture at my own company, I love running Culture Interviews with employees.
Note: A culture interview is one you conduct with your existing employees — this is NOT a hiring interview.
