Summary

This article focuses on the nuances of hiring for growth and provides four recommendations to consider for the future. First, the article recommends hiring employees who are generalists whose skills can be honed for more narrow roles later on. Second, employees who are not passionate about a particular role should not be forced into that role, as they are unlikely to take growth initiatives upon themselves. Third, organizations should foster an environment in which reciprocal openness is the norm, along with decision-making empowerment. Fourth, organizations should strive to gather a set of employees who are diverse in thinking and skill sets.
