1 Case Study: GOOGLE 1) What do you think of the idea of Google correlating personal traits from the employees’ answers on the survey to their performance, and then using that as the basis for screening job candidates? In other words, is it or is it nor a good idea and please explain your answer. Yes, the idea of Google correlating personal traits from the current employees is indeed a very good idea; however, this idea will be helpful to some extent only and will not fully justify for initial screening process. Google’s current hiring strategy is to hire potential employees with different types of skills rather than hiring those with some particular set of skills. Therefore, they pay special attention to the candidates’ previous experience to determine how well the candidates’ skills and abilities will contribute to Google. The recruiters also give a special look to the candidates’ academic records and credentials they attained, a serious look is taken on their GPAs and based on these, their decision is being taken whether the candidate qualifies to some extent to attain the job or not. But this isn’t the only thing required to impress the recruiters. Potential employees are also put through several tests before they get hired, one of these tests are interviews conducted over the phone as well conducted at Google job site. This process can take up to 2-3 months or even more before the final decision is made. 2)The benefits that Google pays obviously represent an enormous expense. Based on what you know about Google and on what you read in this book, how would you defend all these benefits if you’re making a presentation to the security analysis who were analyzing Google’s performance?
