The 4 C's Of Hiring-Part II
By: Rick Boxx
August 11, 2015

When employers hire someone, they often reverse the order of what I call the “4 C’s of Hiring;” Character, Calling, Competence, and Chemistry. Many search for those people who have a resume and experience in the position looking to be filled. Once the list of competent people is narrowed, many select the one they like the best.

A better approach is to hire for character first. Hiring someone with great competence, but no character, can be the worst mistake you’ll ever make. Poor character can permeate and destroy your entire organization.

1 Corinthians 15:33 teaches, “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”

Competence is important, but your final decision should be based on the level of character you find after background checks, interviews, and integrity testing.
