Objectivity: all recruitments and selections should be conducted with professional rigor, with candidates measured against clearly articulated criteria and job competencies;

Transparency: the selection criteria and process should be transparent to all applicants;

Accountability: hiring managers and hiring bureaus have greater direct input into recruitment and selection decisions, matched by greater accountability for those decisions and the processes leading up to them.
