“A players” are 400% more productive than other employees (4). A players need to be cultivated with intentional effort. They need to be purposefully sourced, acclimated, engaged, recognized, developed and promoted in the organization. Each of these HR processes needs to be integrated into the one focus: attract, engage and retain A players.
