The Challenge

Illinois CancerCare expressed interest hiring individuals who would fit with the organization’s values – primarily focused on helping people suffering from cancer and blood diseases overcome them to live healthy, inspiring lives.

Assessment Strategy & Key Differentiators

DeGarmo recommended a culture fit assessment to measure person-job fit.  This assessment platform is one of the most dynamic and sophisticated candidate profiling systems on the market. The culture fit assessment gauges a person’s level of match to the organization’s culture.

According to Timekia Faulkner, Senior HR Generalist, “Several key stakeholders were involved in ensuring the solution met the needs of our company. We at Illinois CancerCare appreciate that DeGarmo was able to help create and administer a tool that we can use for applicants that gives us a report that analyzes where the applicant would fit regarding our values.”

“The solution provides another tool to help us make a successful hire, assessing a candidate’s fit within our company values.”

 

Profile Build

Illinois CancerCare utilized DeGarmo’s customization of a culture fit assessment to more objectively measure person-organization compatibility.  DeGarmo’s culture fit assessment works by comparing Illinois CancerCare’s importance ratings of eleven core  work values (or “culture elements”) – such as Achievement, Propriety, Interpersonal, etc. – to those of internal or external job applicants.
