Competition for talent is now so intense that the best potential employees can be highly selective. Because top talent can pick and choose, personnel issues have become more complex and companies are facing a shortage of top-quality recruits. Mark Miller’s business fable, intertwined with a subplot about a group of job-hunting teens, illustrates how a fictitious firm recruits the best prospects. The fable’s factual basis came from Miller’s firm’s research, including hundreds of interviews. The characters and the dialogue are a little wooden, but they’re meant to be archetypes, and Miller deploys them to provide useful lessons about what motivates top prospects.
