Since I assume that the new HR director is not giving marks, this
seems to be homework.  Please read the FAQs.

1 Supervisors and straw bosses should spend most of the work hours
spot checking, for less than perfect performance. This important work
gets neglected if the typical supervisor has several workers that need
training and/or attitude adjustment. The attitude adjustment is a
worse drag, as it often continues for as long as the person is
employed. The big problem is identifing commpetent self starters who
require little supervision before you make the employment offer. 2 Pay
raises (and other perks) for the most useful workers, pay cuts for the
least useful workers, with minimum concern for "is it fair?".  Neil

I think it is highly advantageous to be adept with problem-solving
techniques ( such as required above) before delving into the business
world.  Don't forget that your compensation package may depend on your
on-the-job performance.  Goodluck!
