1 The Relatively Best Candidate for the Job The most obvious business rationale for non-discrimination is the relatively most able candidates—or the candidates offering “best value for money”—should be appointed for jobs across corporate hierarchies. Assessment of relatively best candidates may happen on the basis of talents, commitment, past accomplishments or projection of future performance. Aside a clear-cut organizational interest to recruit the best people for the job(s), the development of these human resources to a point where abilities, hard and soft skills, knowledge of all kinds and commitment are optimally utilized comes into play.
