re: The 'organizational fit' considerations are a large part of and often
the majority of why a person is hired, or not hired.


re: I know the hours that can be wasted having to deal with 'personnel'
issues with someone who is difficult to work with.


Sounds like an opportunity to learn Diversity 101. Ya got ta know the code.
"Organizational fit" means "just like us" or "keeps her/his head down."
"Hours wasted" means "I'm lazy." "Difficult to work with" means
"outperforms me."

The theory behind worforce diversity is that the company benefits from it.
Failure to benefit is a failure of management to execute. "Failure to
execute" is a phrase encompassing "lazy," among other things. Supervision
is not promotion to on-the-job retirement. Wouldn't it be great if the
company could control the diversity of its customers just like it thinks it
can control the diversity of its staff?

Do some reading at or the like. Expect C--a
C--a wishes it spent a few more hours dealing with 'personnel' issues. $
are what "say it all."
