“If you ask good questions, you're going to get good answers. You're going to get the kind of information you need to make a prediction as to whether this person is the right person to hire.” Nelson Scott
Why Is Hiring the Right People Important?
Nelson Scott believes that people are what makes the organization successful. The right people make it more successful. You want to bring in people that fit the culture of the organization and are in line with the values and purpose and mission of your organization.
