?No other publication I am familiar with covers the breadth of the hiring process in practical terms and walks the reader through a step–by–step process aimed at increasing the effectiveness of attracting and selecting higher performing employees.? (Fred Holt, human resources director, Tenera)
?In any organization, who you hire is every bit as important as your areas of core competency. I wish that the CEO and managers of every organization that I work with would use the performance–based approach described in High–Impact Hiring.? (Juan Rodriguez, entrepreneur; founder, Exabyte Corporation and Storage Technology Corporation; chairman and CEO, Ecrix Corporation)
?High–Impact Hiring views the staffing challenge as similar to and in the context of other typical business problems: the focus is on optimizing the organization′s performance. It offers solid operating assumptions and a set of insightful processes. Great stuff for the line manager or supervisor as well as the HR practitioner.? (John Gordon, vice president of human resources, Fujitsu Microelectronics)
