They grown up in this culture and they might have developed a 'this is how we do things here' attitude resistant to change and disruptive ideas.

Look for people who are different, can dare to challenge the status quo and bring some outside-the-box views into your organization.7

Behavioral Change

The challenge and the shape of an organization's behavioral change program depends on the corporate culture and the targeted behaviors that need to be changed. Your change program needs to be explicitly built around these challenges. "Very often, these programs involve the creation of incentives which elegantly reinforce the desired behavior (and therein reinforce the change loop in the learning dynamic)."1
