Individuals are heterogenous, in terms of motivation, skills (innate and pre-acquired), and risk-appetite, among other aspects. Hence, these individuals might react to firm level (management) controls, such as monetary incentives and training, in different ways. To achieve the objective of aligning the employee’s actions in the desired direction, firms need to acknowledge this heterogeneity in individuals when implementing the various management controls. Most importantly, the firm needs to address the concern of “who is the right person for the job? and “how to attract and select this right person? who would react to the other controls in the most desirable way. Thus, the dissertation examines research questions within the topic of employee selection and its importance in addressing the various needs of the firm from its employees, that is in line with the firm’s environment (choice of other controls).
