You think that good employees are a product of a good school, good grades, and months of training? Think again, says this article in Business Insider. New ways of gathering data and assessing employees has lead to new knowledge about what makes a good employee. Old school job-search staples like resumes and interviews are being replaced by online data, analytics, and the Moneyball approach to hiring.
The most valuable innate quality in an employee? "Over and over again, the people who perform best are the ones who don't need to be told what to do, the ones that love challenges, seek information on their own, and quickly adapt." --Bill Paarlberg, editor (Thanks to Innovation Box for the image.)
