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.
