When Ron was interviewing with Zingerman’s he wanted to do more than just accounting. He wanted a place where he could make a difference. In addition, he wanted to respect his coworkers. He found that at the Zingerman’s community of businesses.

This is part one with Ron Mauer, Managing Partner, Zingerman’s Service Network. The Service Network is a centralized business unit designed to facilitate business functions in a more streamlined version than each Zingerman’s company could possibly do on their own.

How your organization interviews and recruits has a direct impact on your culture and also future engagement. Here are a few things that stood out to Ron while he interviewed with Zingerman’s:

Paul and Ari were involved and knew their businesses deeply.

They were around the business a lot.

They interviewed in the business and not in some off-site locations or behind closed doors (i.e. very open).

They were fun loving and humorous and didn’t take themselves too seriously.

How they were open and honest during the negotiations.

How is your hiring process reinforcing or hurting your culture and engagement?
