The process of producing quality performance starts with the right people. If we take the trouble to find good people we will have fewer problems and this will, in turn, reduce our workload. Quality employees also increase our opportunity to delegate.
If the people selected are carefully matched to the job then we will experience lower staff turnover and higher motivation. Whichever way you look at it, interviewing and selection is probably one of the most important management activities.
