You want to fill your company with smart ideas, fill it with great people. In times of boom or bust, it is the people that provide competitive advantage.

It also explains the psychometric texts, their use and effectiveness. It gives tips on interviewing and the final selection. Part three - After the selection- examines making the offer, probationary period and how to retain the key recruits.
