Okay, let's jump 11 00:00:50.100 --> 00:00:54.940 into the snippet. Talk about the connection between hiring the right 12 00:00:54.940 --> 00:00:59.300 people in building a great culture. Well, I think it's critical. I mean, if 13 00:00:59.300 --> 00:01:02.170 you if you miss on the hiring side, you're just you're not gonna have the 14 00:01:02.170 --> 00:01:06.300 culture that you want that you need. So it's the most critical thing you could 15 00:01:06.300 --> 00:01:12.690 do in an organization is to have the right people. So the cultural fit is 16 00:01:12.690 --> 00:01:19.640 absolutely imperative. It's fairly easy to understand the technical aspects of 17 00:01:19.640 --> 00:01:23.900 a job and the skill set that someone needs toe have. But it's much trickier 18 00:01:23.900 --> 00:01:27.520 to figure out if they're going to be a cultural fit for your organization. So 19 00:01:27.520 --> 00:01:32.020 that's really where I think most of the emphasis should be in the hiring 20 00:01:32.020 --> 00:01:36.560 process. That's what I That's what I do when I'm interviewing as I'm trying to 21 00:01:36.560 --> 00:01:41.560 assess cultural fit. Um, because if it's if somebody doesn't fit culturally, 22 00:01:41.740 --> 00:01:45.550 um, they're not gonna work out. Those are the people in our organization's 23 00:01:45.550 --> 00:01:50.700 history who've been here for a year or less and then are gone. They weren't a 24 00:01:50.700 --> 00:01:55.730 cultural fit. They didn't fit the team atmosphere that we have. And they moved 25 00:01:55.730 --> 00:02:02.270 on because it didn't feel comfortable for them on day or vice versa. Um, 26 00:02:02.640 --> 00:02:06.510 skill set somebody's kind of deficient and something. You work on it, you 27 00:02:06.510 --> 00:02:10.330 train them up, you coach them up. You kind of can work through that. But if 28 00:02:10.330 --> 00:02:17.500 they're not a cultural fit, you're in big trouble in terms of longevity. Hey, 29 00:02:17.500 --> 00:02:20.950 everybody. Logan with sweet fish here.
