There is a lot of talk these days about how companies should just hire good people and train them. After all, we have high unemployment still, and this would be the right thing to do for the greater good, right?
Sure, unless….Unless the best thing for your business or your division is not to just hire and train, but instead to find the person with the skills you need. What’s best for the greater good is for more companies to do better and to grow and get stronger. Many times that means finding the talent you need. If you can’t find the talent you need or if it takes too long or is too expensive, then hiring good people and training may be the solution.
But that is something that each hiring team is going to determine for their specific situation. Orchestrating and promoting what you feel is best for the greater good is backwards and counter productive. What is best for all is for all to follow their best path and do as well as they can. That will take care of the greater good.
