A requirement for every single job, especially in management
is to understand and work effectively with people.Applicants are evaluated on their abilities
and experience working with, leading, and engaging people during the interview
phase of recruitment and we put a strong weighting on this in our decision
making process.Once a person is hired
we expect them to maintain and even increase their abilities - but invest little time
and resources to improve these skills.

critical that they understand more about what motivates their direct reports
and how much personality, theirs and the employees, will impact that persons
working relationships, job satisfaction and most importantly performance.
