I have seen in a HR magazine that "HR should focus on 'business fit, not best in class', says Panasonic HRD ". and i dont understand what is " business fit" and what's "best in class ". Please help me ! ^_^

  • Here is my guess: Business fit: have the skills required to work in the field you studied. Best in class: excellent academic performance, but not always capable of transferring knowledge to the job. – painfulenglish Oct 1 '14 at 8:07

Sounds like "HR should focus of meeting the business needs rather than being the best at particular activities"


This means simply that HR should focus on finding candidates for positions who are a good fit for the company, not spend time looking for the very best person to fill a role.
