Organizations that truly value
effective talent management
place a priority on ensuring good job fit. One way to maximize job fit is to
use employee assessments
in the employee selection process. Managers need a plan before they seek applicants. Good workers are difficult to find, and a manager needs to not only focus on stellar qualities, but also a person's ability to fit into a certain work culture or accomplish a particular job description.
Lucky is the organization that has the right people in the right place at the right time, or optimal job fit. These organizations operate like high-performance luxury automobiles, zooming along the highway while lesser engines chug, sputter, and die.
