  1. 1.   Resumen del Libro “Hiring for Attitude” de Mark Murphy A continuación se presenta un breve resumen en inglés de Jurgita Sarkovaite sobre el libro “Hiring for Attitude”, escrito por Mark Murphy. El autor comenta que cerca del 89% de nuevas contrataciones fracasa debido a problemas actitudinales, y no necesariamente debido a problemas de falta de habilidades.

Por: Jurgita Sarkovaite The book “Hiring for Attitude” is oriented towards HR specialists in the middle-size or big corporations, where HR department has a significant freedom and sufficient resources to experiment in developing innovative Talent Hunting and Retention models. Mark Murphy, a head of a HR Consulting company Leadership IQ, presents a new approach to successful recruitment process discovering the real star performers to fit into the specific organizational environment. The framework presented and analyzed in the book – metaphorically called Discovering Your Brown Shorts – based on the Southwest Airlines best recruitment practices focuses on analyzing the unique characteristics of an individual company and identifying qualities that best represents its high performers.

While most traditional recruitment systems focuses mainly on the candidate’s professional and technical skills, the Brown Shorts puts emphasis on personal values and attitudes, based on the belief that professional skills can be trained, while attitudes and values are for life. Once finished, your Brown Shorts policy should serve the HR department as a practical guide for hiring the best-fit talents for the organization.
