“The secret of my success is that we have gone to exceptional lengths to hire the best people in the world.” – Steve Jobs, an American entrepreneur and business magnate, who was also the chairman, chief executive officer, and a co-founder of Apple Inc. once put it.
He and the other co-founders at Apple, which is undoubtedly one of the most recognised brands and companies in the world, put the factor of attracting the best talent as the driver to their company’s success and it worked.
