Praise for HIRING FOR ATTITUDE "Success in business starts with finding great talent that will thrive within your company culture. Hiring for Attitude combines valuable insights with relatable examples, giving you the tools to recruit the right talent for your organization and reduce your risk of mishires." --BRENT RASMUSSEN, President of CareerBuilder North America "Caesars Praise for HIRING FOR ATTITUDE "Success in business starts with finding great talent that will thrive within your company culture.

Moving way beyond standard hiring approaches, Hiring for Attitude has deepened our talent pool, shown us how to discover untapped talent, reduced the risk of hiring the wrong person, and cut turnover substantially." --MITCH LITTLE, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Applications, Microchip "Who's getting hired this year? People with great attitudes who can fit a particular culture. But traditional hiring approaches don't help you discover who is (and isn't) the perfect fit. Hiring for Attitude will reveal exactly what attitudes you need to succeed. Whether you're hiring from outside, or choosing the right internal people for a new project, this book gives you unparalleled insight into people's attitudes." --SAM HOLTZMAN, President and CEO, LifeGift About the Book: In a recent groundbreaking study, the training firm Leadership IQ found that 46 percent of all new hires fail within their first 18 months. But here's the real shocker: 89 percent fail for attitudinal reasons--not skills. Most hiring managers are getting it wrong. Of course skills are important, but a particular skill set is about the easiest thing to test in an interview. Although much harder to recognize, attitude should be your number-one focus during the hiring process. Don't suffer from poor chemistry--even one employee with the wrong attitude could cause years of suffering for your other employees and customers. Whether you're hiring new employees, choosing existing employees for a new team, or upgrading your current talent pool, you need people with the right attitude! Attitude is what makes employees give 100 percent effort and turns customers into raving fans. Attitude sets your company apart from the competition. In Hiring for Attitude, top leadership strategist Mark Murphy shows you: The five biggest reasons why new hires fail Two quick and easy tests to discover the attitudinal characteristics that you need for your unique culture The five-part interview question that gets candidates to reveal the truth about what their last boss really thinks of them Where great companies really find their best candidates The six words most interviewers add to the end of behavioral interview questions that destroy their effectiveness Hiring for Attitude includes case studies from Microchip, Southwest Airlines, The Ritz-Carlton, Google, and other companies that drive great results by hiring for attitude. Whether your company is small or big, highly social or hyper-competitive, fl at or hierarchical, every person on your payroll has to fit your culture. You can't afford to hire blind. You need to be Hiring for Attitude.

"We spend more time working than doing anything else in life. It's not right that the experience of work should be so demotivating and dehumanizing." So says Laszlo Bock, head of People Operations at the company that transformed how the world interacts with knowledge. This insight is the heart of WORK RULES!, a compelling and surprisingly playful manifesto that offers lessons including: Take away managers' power over employees Learn from your best employees-and your worst Hire only people who are smarter than you are, no matter how long it takes to find them Pay unfairly (it's more fair!) Don't trust your gut: Use data to predict and shape the future Default to open-be transparent and welcome feedback If you're comfortable with the amount of freedom you've given your employees, you haven't gone far enough. Drawing on the latest research in behavioral economics and a profound grasp of human psychology, WORK RULES! also provides teaching examples from a range of industries-including lauded companies that happen to be hideous places to work and little-known companies that achieve spectacular results by valuing and listening to their employees. Bock takes us inside one of history's most explosively successful businesses to reveal why Google is consistently rated one of the best places to work in the world, distilling 15 years of intensive worker R&D into principles that are easy to put into action, whether you're a team of one or a team of thousands. WORK RULES! shows how to strike a balance between creativity and structure, leading to success you can measure in quality of life as well as market share. Read it to build a better company from within rather than from above; read it to reawaken your joy in what you do.
