According to Raj Fernando, the secret to running a successful business lies in employees getting along with each other. It’s also important that the surrounding atmosphere where workers stay to be pleasant. In the hiring process, Raj Fernando uses a completely different approach than that of his competitors. Over the years, Raj Fernando has implemented a lengthy and involving process when it comes to hiring new employees. He does not employ the old technique of bringing in a list of prospective employees and hiring the best employees. When hiring employees, he chooses the ones that will probably retire from the organization. According to Raj Fernando, he doesn’t want employees who will just make him money; he is interested in those that bring quality to organization and does not make other employees feel miserable. He compares it to a marriage where both individuals need one another.
