Liz Ryan is an expert in human resources and one of their main concerns is how to attract and retain the best employees for each company. In her article, she talks about her vision of a system based on distrust of workers-which occupies a lot of time, money, resources and energy-when focus should be applied directly to the company generating profits, benefits to its employees and its customers. How does this system work? Is there consistency? What is the solution?
