Understanding how a candidate will affect your team can support your hiring decision — you can use team fit to learn more about candidates and how they can influence the dynamics in your team.
Team Fit allows you to discuss the effect of adding a specific candidate into your current team and help you better understand how this candidate will address your team's needs.
Team fit is particularly useful for the final hiring decision when you are between a few candidates and want to have better insight into how your team could function.
Before you start
- Invite your colleagues to Alva and add them into teams.
- Ensure team members have completed their personality tests - learn how to get started with Team Insights.
- Ensure you tag your team to the job position under position settings.
