Effective Talent Management Starts with Job-fit

Posted by Vy Huynh on Nov 18, 2014 11:30:00 AM

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.

Aesop’s Fable: A Tale of Teamwork

Posted by Shekhar Bhusannavar on Mar 4, 2013 8:48:00 AM

Have you ever heard of Aesop’s FableThe Belly and the Members? Well the fable reads:
“One fine day it occurred to the Members of the Body that they were doing all the work and the Belly was having all the food. So they held a meeting, and after a long discussion, decided to strike work till the Belly consented to take its proper share of the work. So for a day or two, the Hands refused to take the food, the Mouth refused to receive it, and the Teeth had no work to do. But after a day or two the Members began to find that they themselves were not in a very active condition: the Hands could hardly move, and the Mouth was all parched and dry, while the Legs were unable to support the rest. So thus they found that even the Belly in its dull quiet way was doing necessary work for the Body, and that all must work together or the Body will go to pieces.”
