A Quick Quiz on HR 1. Can you legally fire someone for their astrological symbol? 2. When hiring employees, is it better to hire people who you judge to be hard working, organized, and dedicated during a traditional interview, or is an IQ test a better way to pick people? 3. Is it better to hire people based on the fit of their values with the company’s values, or is an IQ test better? 4. True or false--Asking applicants about stealing or other negative behavior at work during an interview doesn’t help you find better employees, because most people who are going to do bad things at work just lie. 5. True or false--If employees participate in decision making they will be more motivated than if top management sets performance goals? 6.
