A disaster would occur. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 12:4, "There are diversities of gifts."

Too often when we make work assignments, we don't match up a colleague with the responsibilities of a job. Develop a detailed list of the skills and competencies required for a position. During an interview process, review the candidate's background to verify a good match. Ask the candidate how her or his background matches the position. When filling an important job, consider using "testing tools" to ensure a good match. We need to take the time and care to place each person in the proper job. This will reduce turnover, improve job performance, and ultimately enhance company profitability.
