What’s the corporate culture like in your current workplace? What’s the ideal corporate culture for you? How much of an overlap is there between the current and your ideal? In what other companies could you find more of a match and be happier at work?
That’s what a great new website, jiibe.com can help you find out.
I’ve been fooling around with it and I love it! It’s really simple – the website asks you a series of questions, and you tell it how things are at your current company and how you’d ideally like them to be.
At the end you get a description of your ideal corporate culture and a list of the companies that match it best – based not on how those companies define themselves but on how other jiibe users rated their workplaces.
I really liked the questions in the survey, which ask about day-to-day situations in a company. This means that they poll what values a company actually has – as opposed to the values they say they have. Also the user interface is seriously slick and of course the whole concept is brilliant.
I believe that jiibe can help job seekers find more happiness at work by letting us find companies where we are more likely to fit in.
And the development possibilities are endless. How about asking users how happy they are at work in order to investigate the effect on corporate culture on job satisfaction. You could let companies state their desired corporate culture and determine the gap between desired and actual culture.
I could go on, but I won’t. Instead, check out jiibe.com, take their survey – and then come back here and let me know what your ideal corporate culture is like in a comment.
For instance, my ideal culture is:
