Passionate employees ??

This was an interesting read for me.

How to identify people who are passionate about their jobs.
Don't ask employees to be passionate about the company!

I think the last 4 points are very important, and probably you can use in your interviews to filter people who are not passionate about their jobs.

The simple 4-question test to see if someone has a passion for their work:

* When was the last time you read a trade/professional journal or book related to your work? (can substitute "attended an industry conference or took a course")

* Name at least two of the key people in your field.

* If you had to, would you spend your own money to buy tools or other materials that would improve the quality of your work?

* If you did not do this for work, would you still do it (or something related to it) as a hobby?
