Hiring the wrong people? Unable to find and retain top talent?

Your company may be experiencing the "Taboo of the Bananas!" Sending the wrong messages to potential candidates and interviewers alike can cripple your hiring process and guarantee that you always end up with mediocre results.

Stephen Balzac, consultant and author of "The 36-Hour Course on Organizational Development," discusses the problem, and how to solve it, in his recent article, "The Taboo of the Bananas: Organizational Culture and Recruiting," published by the Journal of Corporate Recruiting Leadership.

Small decisions can have big impacts, especially when we don't even realize we're making those decisions! If you want to hire the best, it's not enough to be the best: you also need to understand the message you're sending!
