    Interviews are not the most effective way to select people, but if you need to do it:

    Standardize your questions
    Ask behavioral questions

    “What underlies a great place to work isn’t access to perks, but rather experiences that are psychologically fulfilling.” -Ron Freidman

    Three needs that we have to feel good at work:

    Being good at the work we are doing and able to grow our competence
    Being connected to the people around us
    Autonomy and choice in how we approach our work

    “The impact of money on job satisfaction is incredibly small.” -Ron Freidman
