Sometimes, particularly efficient and forward-looking employees break into the leader’s workday routine with a proposal to share their burden for the outcome of the whole business. Such employees possess strategic skills or experience that can improve the existing products or services of an enterprise, and moreover, they feel ready to take a quantum leap in their development, and want to take on the role of a mature business partner, and not just of an ordinary employee. And then, the leader faces a dilemma: to fire such an overweening and brass-necked jumped-up nobody or entrust a separate important business area to this key employee.

A job interview is one of the most common tools used for staff selection and assessment.

The staff recruitment process is rather complex not only because of the need to find the competent employee but also because the process itself must be optimised taking into account such performance criteria as costs/time/quality. Recruiting a new employee should not be a problem when any of currently working employees informs you of his/her decision to leave, and you must urgently find a replacement. Attracting the best talents from the labour market requires well-thought recruitment strategy tailored to the specificities and needs of your company.
