As the demands of modern businesses get more sophisticated, the needs of employers to find the right workers is gaining urgency. Yet when it comes to recruiting, the very definition of "right" is changing. No longer is it enough merely to find employees with the right mix of professional skills and experiences. Today's best-run organizations are populated by professionals who work well in teams, surmount challenges, and communicate effectively with colleagues and customers.
