I believe that the leader should have at least a 2-minute interview with everybody the operation is seriously hiring, if only to see that the applicant’s personality will fit. People should be selected very Say what suggestions of the writer seem most essential to you. carefully because they are going to be around for a long time. They should be interviewed by at least three levels of supervision and a peer or two. They should come back for a second interview and be asked all the specific questions possible under the equal employment laws. As to the number of people to hire, we should never hire people when doing so would reduce the revenue per employee, and we should hire people only when there are actual jobs to do, not when we are betting on the future.
Every now and then, someone does not fit into the Say what suggestions of the writer seem most essential to you. organization and has to be let go. Unless there is some cause involved, such as fraud or another method of betraying a trust, firing should be considered a very serious matter. The act terminating someone from a company involves more than severing the relationship between an individual and a company. It also makes other people nervous.
