Steve Jobs Quote

This month's theme highlights the importance of hiring and employee retention.

And today's quote is about hiring extraordinary people. This quote comes from Steve Jobs, an American business magnate, investor, and co-founder of Apple Inc. He said:

“Some people can do one thing magnificently, like Michelangelo, and others make things like semiconductors or build 747 airplanes — that type of work requires legions of people. In order to do things well, that can't be done by one person, you must find extraordinary people.
