Hr isn't exactly known for rigorous scientific research and I don't recall it being hr that introduced this trend of hazing candidates.

Also have you got any examples of this research that actually proves this correlation I haven't heard of any and I would have as I have spent decades semi involved in IR (industrial relations) in the UK
