In the News | BBC covers Sauder research on the science of hiring smart


BBC Capital, the public broadcaster’s new business news website, explores the art of hiring in their Leader Board column. The story acknowledges that hiring can be tricky, even for the most experienced managers.

It refers to research by Associate Professor Marc-David Seidel on why companies may want to avoid hiring people recommended by current employees.

“Hiring a friend or a friend of a trusted colleague isn’t a reliable way to find good employees,” says Seidel.
