I just listened to the cast about hiring: "Setting the bar high" from about a year ago.
I work in a small company and my boss, the CEO, tends to hire friends of his kids or his kids themselves. This has happened 3 times now and has always ended in disaster. It's about to happen again and I'm not optimistic, obviously. I have a good enough relationship with him to be able to say, "Look, this really hasn't worked in the past," but there is a MAJOR blind spot there. People are hired without ever even being interviewed! Is there anything that I can do?
