MT302 Unit 3 Discussion
April 2, 2023
Although emotions and moods impact on-the-job performance, employees are often chosen for their personality traits. Along with a person’s personality type, the organization’s culture is considered. The company recruiter tries to hire decision-makers they think will fit into the existing company culture. In this discussion, you will consider all three aspects impacting employee hiring and employee effectiveness.
