Exciting News: Our First Book in the Emerald Publishing "New Business Culture Series" is out

We are thrilled to introduce the first book in the series, "New Approaches to Recruitment and Selection," which challenges the status quo in the world of talent acquisition. Current recruitment practices often focus on matching applicants with the corporate culture, leaving little room for diverse perspectives and value systems. This book takes a fresh look at this approach, advocating that while organizations should always promote their core values, the way they're applied needs a rethink.  Supporting app to diagnose for enrichment is available in the book - Walk the Talk!

CultureXplore

Based on Fons Trompenaars’ Seven Dimension of Culture model and data of over 140 countries to explore.
