Misplaced Talent: A Guide to Better People Decisions by Joe Ungemah

Misplaced Talent (2015) is a practical guide to hiring the employee best suited for the job and how to keep that employee happy and satisfied. Many businesses don’t even know what skills they should look for in an employee – or, if they do, they’ll forget about keeping that employee motivated once he or she is on board. It’s important to know how to do both of these things, so find out how to avoid all the messy pitfalls and keep your workforce happy.

  • Human-resource employees
  • Readers unhappy with their current job
  • CEOs and managers who want to hire the best people

Joe Ungemah is a psychologist and an expert on how and why people make the decisions they do. His advice is sought after in the United States, Australia and Europe, where he’s helped a number of major companies find more satisfied employees.
