I have been working in a corporate environment for more than 25 years. One of the most challenging aspect in my career is to find the right person to do a job. I made a few wrong hiring decisions along the way and they were miserable. What is the quality of the right person?
The answer is the best person for the job is the person who possesses the right balance of her skill sets, attitude, work ethic and how she puts work in her life. It’s easy to say but very difficult to find. If you can find the persons with these traits, believe me, please do everything you could to keep them with you. They are your greatest assets. They can make a big difference.
I hope that before I retire, I would have an opportunity to work in a company that treats staff well. If you already work in such company, you are very lucky. Do your best, give it all, and make a difference. Those companies are very, very rare to find. Most of them are hopeless.
