The Right Person isn‘t the Best Person – Joe Pan

Published on 2013-09-11

THE ‘RIGHT’ PERSON DOESN’T NECESSARILY mean that they are the ‘best’ person. So says Joe Pan, Vice President of RayooTech in Beijing.
Joe’s company hires engineers from top Chinese universities, often with PhDs. However, he found that many of these academically minded employees lacked the drive and motivation to do hard work. He soon realised that hiring less qualified graduates were the right fit, even if they weren’t technically the best.
