Hiring the overqualified can help your business

You're not alone, Clark.
You know the old saying--Overqualified people will work for a while and leave when something better comes along.

But two assistant profs of management at Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business, recently published a paper in the J of Applied Psych, says when over qualified people see they are not the only big fish in the pond they tend to be more favorable about their overqualification and perform better.

Normalized in the workplace, overqualification, in other words, exerts a positive influence.

When an overqualified person comes on board, they should be shown they are in good company and are working with a highly qualified group.

OK, you heard it here first.
