Working with the right people

Employees are knowledge workers and they should be treated as assets of the company. Finding talents, recruiting, training and retaining them are crucial factors not only for the HR department of the company but for the company as a whole.

The question of whether a person is right or not for a particular organization depends on the following factors:

  • The fit between the organization and the person (e.g. is the prevailing culture of the organization relevant with the person’s character? does the organization provide personal and career development environment for the employee?)
  • The proficiency (background, experience and skills) of the employee and the goodwill (attitudes such as honesty) of both sides.
  • The match between the motivational factors of the employee and what the organization can provide for her/him. (providing extrinsic awards such as money compensation is not enough; intrinsic awards such as recognition of success, positive feedbacks are extremely necessary).
  • The good relations between the employee and his/her manager.

If all of these conditions are satisfied then we can assert that the organization works with the right people.
