image description

Decision Toolbox CEO Kim Shepherd recently spoke with OC Register’s Michelle Rafter about ways a potential employee might vet the workplace culture of a new employer.

Discover the beliefs, interests and soft skills of a potential boss by looking up recommendations and endorsements on their LinkedIn profile. “If they are involved with charitable causes, you can deduce that they probably care about giving back to the community,” Shepherd said. “It also allows you to find out where they went to school and their career advancement history.”
