The difference between “Hiring for Compliance” vs “Hiring for engagement”


Finite minded companies who think in terms of short term goals or targets invest on profit/resources over profits..These are workplaces wherein people are pitted against one another and collaboration or emotional quotient is given least significance.All they demand is efficient workers who are able to exhibit compliance

As against this infinite minded organizations are driven by innovation and creativity.These are workplace where trustworthiness is given more value along with collaboration..People feel engaged in such workplace since their opinion counts and they receive the backing of their infinite minded leaders..

The following quote of Simon Sinek aptly summarizes the difference and shows why in infinite minded organization people are prepared to give their blood , sweat and tear for an infinite minded leader..

“If you hire people just because they can do a job, they’ll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they’ll work for you with blood, sweat, and tears.”
