Culture fit is a term for having a test in your hiring process about how a candidate will fit in with your company's existing culture.

Problems with culture fit tests[]

Culture fit tests cause you to hire people who culturally resemble your existing employees. When your company's culture has been established by a predominately privileged workforce (eg, a tech office full of white men whose cultural references are Anglosphere science fiction in-jokes), culture fit tests are likely to perpetrate your lack of diversity and possible hostility to workers from other cultures or oppressed groups.
