There have been quite a few articles about hiring a diverse workforce lately, but the articles have overlooked one salient fact: quality people may or may not be diverse. Minorities may not have the educational background you need.
As a business person, you want to hire quality people at rates you can afford, and this might not be the most diverse workforce. Usually, you take the first person who fits the criteria you’ve set up and ranked, right?
We even have a course to develop the rankings in our School, www.theasoe.com, based on successful people in a job.
