Why We've Stopped Saying "Culture Fit" and What We're Saying Instead

When the phrase "culture fit" is thoughtfully and deliberately applied, it can mean a gauge for your company's essential values. At other companies, it might simply mean, "Is this a person with whom you want to have a beer after work?"](http://lifehacker.com/try-the-beer-test-to-make-a-hiring-decision-1656021914)

Wondering where that leaves people who don't drink, people who don't like beer or people who have after-work responsibilities like kids? Then you're asking some great questions.

Culture fit can be an exclusive term, perhaps evena new way to discriminate without even realizing we're doing it.
