The success of an organisation is highly dependent on Hiring the ‘right’ people. The ‘right’ employee may be a highly-skilled, multi-talented and a great communicator who manages time efficiently. But even the right employee won’t be effective if they are in the wrong role. People always do their best when they enjoy what they do; in other words, when they are engaged. Even the most competent, intelligent candidate will not do well in the role if they aren’t motivated or don’t want to do it.

You need to know exactly what you expect from the person you are going to put into a role, before you sit down to interview. You might be better off hiring someone who may not have all the required skills but is passionate about learning and succeeding in the field. This is where the identification of potential comes in.
