Spotlight

Hiring tactic: After a top salesperson hired in 2009 based solely on her resumé crashed and burned, this firm introduced a “hiring intelligence” process that evaluates job candidates’ personality, sales ability, communication skills, decision-making ability, persistence and work ethic. Witz says every sales hire since then has performed well.
