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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
