Hiring, as we have argued before, should be treated like a zero-tolerance industry. Making strong hiring decisions is crucial to any organization’s success and wrong hires are incredible expensive mistakes that bring down…Continue
That’s right; I said it, “The dumbing down of Staffing”. As much as we all love technology, and tools, I mean one of my monikers is “the Tool Guy”, technology and tools are dumbing us down.

Here’s the question of the day – what if we treated hiring like a zero-tolerance industry?
A zero-tolerance industry is an industry where mistakes are not tolerated. Nuclear engineers work in a zero-tolerance industry. Air traffic controllers work in a zero-tolerance industry. Police officers work in a zero-tolerance industry.
